Published 10/18/2022 in the True Citizen
Burke Health announced the purchase of new robotics technology for use during spine surgical procedures last week.
The Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ is a revolutionary robotic navigation platform system designed to be intuitive and streamline the surgical workflow. Real-time tracking of instruments and implants, along with audible, visual and tactile feedback, enables confidence throughout the procedure by providing visualization of instrument and implant positioning concerning patient anatomy and significantly reducing the amount of radiation required.
“As the only hospital in the region to use the Globus Robot, Burke Health is dedicated to the safest and most efficient spine care. Surgery will be performed in the most technological way, with enhanced patient safety and extreme confidence in hardware placement. In turn, this will enhance care and patient outcomes for the best opportunities moving forward,” said Justin Bundy, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon at Burke Health.
A spokesperson from the hospital said two procedures will be performed this week utilizing the robot.
“We are extremely excited to acquire this advanced surgical technology for our physicians,” stated CEO Mike Hester. “This reinforces our commitment and ability to provide the highest quality care to our patients. We will continue to invest in technology, innovation and infrastructure to ensure we provide the best possible care to our patients and our communities.”
