Why do doctors use spinal surgery robots?


Spinal surgery robots can help doctors solve many difficult problems in surgical treatment, such as the upper cervical spine. In more difficult surgeries, robots have a clear advantage. The clinical precision of the Perlove orthopedic surgery robot can reach the sub-millimeter level (≤0.7mm), realizing the clinical application of robots assisting doctors in difficult upper cervical spine surgery.

What benefits can spinal surgery robots bring to doctors?

Director Wang Boyao of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University stated: What robots for spinal surgery bring to me are things that I would not do, places that cannot be reached by human hands. For example, in the upper cervical spine, the nails for the upper cervical spine are difficult to place precisely because the pedicles are very short, small, and thin. If you can’t hit it correctly, you will have no chance to go in again, because the hole has been destroyed, and if you go in again, it will go in the same way, and it will damage the surrounding nerves. The upper cervical spine is very dangerous, but with the spinal surgery robot, it can better provide more precise and stable solutions for difficult and miscellaneous diseases.

Then someone will ask: how many difficult surgeries are there in a general hospital? It is amazing to do 5 or 10 surgeries a year. So why use robots? In fact, robots are not only used in difficult surgeries, we have to use them in routine surgeries. So far, I have performed more than 30 surgeries with Perlove medical orthopedic surgery robots, all of which are The conventional screw placement and bone cement implantation of vertebroplasty are routine operations. Because I think that even if we give patients a little more benefit here and a little more benefit there, even if the wound is a little smaller and the time is a little less, the sum is good.

In addition, doctors are doing PKP and PVP vertebral body shaping, and they will take a lot of rays when driving nails. After using the spinal surgery robot, the one-time precision nail placement is successful with the assistance of the robot. During this process, the doctor does not “eat radiation”, and the patient does not “eat radiation”. For this kind of surgery, only 12 pictures were taken in 20 minutes with the help of robots, but traditional surgery usually cannot be done without more than 30 pictures, so robot-assisted surgery can bring less radiation to our doctors . The patient only needs one operation. For the doctor, 5 or 6 machines are needed a day. After the accumulation, the radiation dose is very large. These are some difficulties and pain points that spinal surgery robots can solve.

The outstanding features of robot-assisted spinal surgery are accuracy and intelligence. For some elderly people who still suffer from underlying diseases, the surgical plan of robot-assisted vertebroplasty can quickly achieve pain relief with small surgical incisions and less bleeding. It has a series of advantages such as optimizing the operation steps, shortening the recovery time, fully reducing, preventing bone cement leakage, and preventing postoperative infection.
