How surgical robotic guidance works

The cutting-edge Mazor X Stealth Spine Robot at Valley View enables Dr. Ceola to create an individualized 3D surgical plan for his patients before stepping into the operating room. During the procedure, the Mazor X automated robotic arm holds key surgical instrumentation in place for Dr. Ceola. Robotic guidance then helps Dr. Ceola execute the custom surgical plan with exceptional precision through micro incisions.

Like other robotic-assisted technologies, Mazor X™ enhances the surgeon’s human skills to deliver superior precision – all while the surgeon retains full control of the procedure.
