Advanced Technology Enhances Care at Kettering Medical Center
Story by Kettering Adventist HealthCare Staff
Kettering Medical Center is the first and only hospital in the Midwest to use Brainlab Cirq® Robotics arm for minimally invasive spinal surgeries. The robotic arm is a lightweight, surgeon-controlled device designed to increase precision in navigated spinal surgery procedures.
The robotic arm easily mounts directly onto a standard operating room bed rail to provide an avenue for precise spinal drilling and pedicle screw placement. Patients that have an operation using the robotic arm have several advantages for their recovery including lower surgical complications, smaller incisions, less exposure to radiation and a lower chance of needing additional surgeries.
