The ExcelsiusGPS represents a groundbreaking robotic innovation from Globus Medical, tailored for intricate spinal and neurological surgeries. This cutting-edge technology combines advanced navigation capabilities to enhance precision and efficiency.
The distinctiveness of the ExcelsiusGPS lies in its ability to facilitate minimally invasive spinal surgeries. Achieving this feat involves the integration of a robust robotic arm with sophisticated navigation skills. This convergence empowers surgical endeavors with exceptional alignment accuracy and optimized operational efficiency. The surgeon gains real-time insights to visualize, strategize, and guide the surgery's progression.
Primarily utilized in spinal fusion procedures involving the placement of pedicle screws, the ExcelsiusGPS employs a meticulous approach. Prior to surgery, spinal imaging captures the anatomical structure, feeding this data into the ExcelsiusGPS system. This dataset aids the surgeon in planning the positioning and dimensions of the pedicle screws, customizing the approach based on the patient's unique anatomy. The surgical strategy serves as a guiding roadmap, orchestrating the dance between surgeon and robotic counterpart throughout the procedure.
Comparable to a GPS for the spine, the ExcelsiusGPS robotic arm follows a predetermined route, mirroring a GPS-guided journey. Surgeons exercise precise control, maneuvering the robotic arm to execute the accurate placement of pedicle screws. A real-time display affords the surgeon continuous oversight, enabling monitoring and intervention throughout the procedure.
The beginning of the surgery involves the acquisition of CT scans and X-rays, offering a panoramic snapshot of the spinal configuration. These images integrate seamlessly into the ExcelsiusGPS system, not dissimilar to a navigational map guiding a vehicle's path. Surgeons harness this map, meticulously guiding the robotic arm along the predefined trajectory for pedicle screw placement.
The ExcelsiusGPS system also heralds expedited recovery times. Following minimally invasive procedures, patients often experience the ability to stand on the same day and leave the hospital within a day. Recovery timelines, although individually variable, commonly exhibit improved symptoms and pain reduction within 2 to 4 weeks post-surgery, marking a testament to the efficacy of the ExcelsiusGPS innovation.
