Patients who undergo this type of surgery can benefit from significantly reduced risk of complications, less post-operative pain, and shorter recovery times.
The ExcelsiusGPS™ robot enables improved visualisation and precision during surgery. Similar to a GPS navigation system in a car, the ExcelsiusGPS™ robot guides the placement of instruments and implants through a rigid robotic arm that orients the surgeon along a guided pathway. Navigation provides feedback and real-time visualisation of the positioning of implants and instruments in relation to the patient’s anatomy.
This assists Mater Private surgeons in our Orthopaedic and Spine Centre to complete more complex, delicate and minimally invasive spinal procedures. Robotic-assisted spine surgery offers many benefits to patients:
- smaller incisions and safer surgery
- reduced blood loss and muscle damage
- less post-operative pain and improved outcomes
- faster recovery and return to normal daily life
The Mater Private Orthopaedic and Spine Centre in Dublin is one of only four hospitals in Europe to offer spinal fusion surgery supported by ExcelsiusGPS™ surgical guidance technology. For patients, this is the safest and most effective way to complete the procedure. This ensures Mater Private patients receive the highest quality care using the most advanced methods and practices available.
