    Robotic spine surgery

    Robotic spine surgery

    Avista Adventist Hospital offers an innovative robotic solution to spine surgery. The robotic guidance platform combines pre-operative planning tools and analytics with intra-operative guidance, giving our spine surgeons advanced options. This technology allows for additional minimally invasive techniques for better outcomes and shorter recovery times for our patients.

    Minimally-invasive procedures, with their smaller incisions, can pose a challenge to surgeons due to the limited view of the patient’s anatomy. Our technology helps to overcome this challenge with a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics, which gives the surgeon comprehensive information and visualization before the surgery starts. Consequently, the Platform supports surgeons’ commitment to operate with precision.

    Avista Adventist Hospital is a leader in spine surgery, and we are proud to be among the first in offering the latest surgical technology to our community in order to provide enhanced surgical care.
