Think of it like a GPS for your back. 3D image guided spine surgery is revolutionizing how spinal procedures are performed today.
If you are considering back surgery, there has never been a better time to undergo this procedure. Surgical imaging and new navigation technologies enable your surgeon to perform with greater accuracy and enhanced visualization both before and during surgery.
Before surgery – The surgeon will use Surgical planning software to help the surgeon prepare for the patient’s procedure
During surgery – Intraoperative imaging provides a detailed view of the patient’s anatomy in real time
What is Surgical Imaging and Navigation?
Using special CT scans and a technology very similar to GPS, a 3D guidance system allows surgeons to visualize the patient’s anatomy in a 3D view and visual the placement of surgical instrumentation throughout the surgical procedure.
So what Are the Benefits of Surgical Imaging and Navigation?
Surgery with a 3D Imaging System and navigation technology can enable your surgeon to:
- Perform the surgery more accurately
- Use smaller incisions
- Avoid critical structures and increase safety
These sophisticated tools may not be available in every hospital specializing in spinal surgeries. Ask your neurosurgeon at Premier Brain and Spine about 3D image guided surgery today.
