Epworth HealthCare backbone surgeons are supported by a brand new digital robotic platform that successfully offers them additional fingers within the theater.
Epworth Richmond is claimed to be the primary hospital in Australia to mix the CIRQ robotic arm with Brainlab’s spinal navigation system. At present, Epworth surgeons can use Brainlab navigation to plan the operation with millimeter precision based mostly on the affected person’s scans and pictures.
Brainlab then gives visible steering to the surgeon to drill into the affected person’s backbone and insert DePuy Synthes screws on the pre-planned path whereas watching a navigation display screen.
With the digital robotic arm CIRQ, planning takes place in actual time within the working room. The robotic then strikes into the right place and acts as a information for the surgeon when inserting screws into the backbone.
The system is used for surgical procedures together with cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral and pelvic procedures.
