Also called: Gobus ExcelsiusGPS Spine Robot; Robotic Spine Surgery
UAMS Health is the first center in the state to acquire the Gobus ExcelsiusGPS Spine Robot for minimally invasive surgery. On the day of surgery, medical images are taken and imported into ExcelsiusGPS®. These images are used by our surgeons to determine the size and placement of screws and create a surgical plan based on the patient’s anatomy. The surgical plan guides the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of a patient’s spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeon uses this pathway or route to accurately place screws using instruments.
Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgeon and staff to monitor. This display allows the surgeon to view live feedback during a patient’s procedure.
