About Mazor Robotics
For complicated spinal procedures, Dr. Subramanian enlists the help of Mazor Robotics—the leading innovator in spine surgery. Mazor Robotics turn free-hand procedures into highly-accurate robotic procedures, providing a safer surgical environment for both patients and surgeons.
Precise Surgical Planning Suite
The system includes a precise surgical planning suite, that allows for a sophisticated 3D analysis of the patient’s spine. The planning suite also gives Dr. Subramanian and his team the surgical tools necessary to determine procedure goals and a surgical plan.
This means that before making a single cut, Dr. Subramanian can have an entire surgical blueprint planned, so he knows the layout for the entire surgery before starting. This allows him to execute his surgical plan as a predictable and efficient procedure, with no anatomical surprises. He and his team know what to expect, avoiding complications.
Anatomy Recognition Engine
The Mazor Robotics system also includes an anatomy recognition engine that reads and recognizes anatomical features based on advanced algorithms. This engine is fundamental for surgical planning and is required for many of the system’s advanced technologies, including: vertebral segmentation, image registration and alignment calculations.
Patient Connection Platform
Furthermore, the Mazor Robotics system include a set of biocompatible devices that affix the robotic arm to the patient’s skeletal anatomy. This ensures precise surgery through a solid and stable connection, and is a major contributor to accuracy.
Cross Modality Image Registration
Finally, the Mazor Robotics System utilizes its registration tool to analyze and match images from different modalities and body positions. Each vertebra is registered independently of the others, and is accurate regardless of the modality, date of the image and patient position.
Our staff takes great pride in being one of the leading edge spinal surgery teams not only in Houston, but in the entire state of Texas. With the Mazor Robotics system, Dr. Subramanian and his team are able to help patients more quickly and efficiently, with less pain, fewer scars and shorter recovery times. This means patients can improve their daily quality of life while no longer suffering from chronic back pain.
