Robotic Assisted Spine Surgery: Pearls and Pitfalls – Orthopedic Webinar Series

Robotic Assisted Spine Surgery: Pearls and Pitfalls – Orthopedic Webinar Series

The goal of this symposium is to help surgeons become competent in recognizing in the advantages of robotic assisted surgery, the indications for robotic assisted surgery, the technical skills to implement, and gain the understanding of the limitations of the technology.

Robotic assisted spine surgery uses some of the latest technologies to enter the spine surgery arena. These technologies have been used successfully in total joint arthroplasty, stereotactic cranial surgery, and prostate resection. As this cutting edge technology makes inroads in spine surgery, there are challenges and solutions specific to spine surgery. The goal of this symposium is to help surgeons become competent in recognizing in the advantages of robotic assisted surgery, the indications for robotic assisted surgery, the technical skills to implement, and gain the understanding of the limitations of the technology. The attendees should feel comfortable with the concepts of the advantages of robotic assisted surgery, but also understand that it may be more suited to certain clinical situations to improve accuracy and patient safety, while still decreasing overall radiation.
