About Robotic Spine Surgery
NeoSpine surgeons use innovative technologies that enable minimally invasive approaches to your surgery. The robots used in robotic spine surgery can perform repetitive tasks with virtually unlimited endurance and without decreased performance. Robots can also improve the accuracy of procedures—such as those involving the placement of rods or screws.
ExcelsiusGPS® is the next revolution in robotic spine surgery from Globus Medical, a developer of spinal and orthopedic implants and surgical instruments for patients with spine disorders. ExcelsiusGPS® is designed to improve accuracy and optimize patient care by using robotics and navigation, much like a GPS in your car.
This revolutionary robotic navigation platform is the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate trajectory alignment in spine surgery. ExcelsiusGPS® is Globus Medical’s advanced technology solution designed to enhance safety and improve efficiency for patients and surgeons.
How Does ExcelsiusGPS® Work?
On the day of surgery, medical images are taken and imported into ExcelsiusGPS®. The surgeon uses these images to determine the size and placement of implants and creates a patient plan based on your anatomy. This is used to guide the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of your spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeons uses this pathway or route to accurately place the implants using instruments.
Throughtout 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 feddback during your procedure for more precise implant placement.

As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed on minimally invasive techniques, and this is where the Mazor X™ Platform can deliver its greatest technological benefits.
Minimally invasive procedures with their smaller incisions can pose a challenge to surgeons due to the limited view of the patient’s anatomy. The Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform helps to overcome this challenge with a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics that gives the surgeon comprehensive information and visualization before the surgery starts. Consequently, the platform supports surgeons’ commitment to operate with precision.
