Mazor-X Robotic Spinal Surgical System – Johnson City Medical Center
With minimally invasive MAZOR X™ robotic technology, world-class spinal surgery is available in your own backyard.
The Mazor X system by Mazor Robotics is only offered at a handful of hospitals around the country.
Johnson City Medical Center has the only one in Tennessee.
Unmatched precision and accuracy
Using three integrated processes – planning, guidance and verification – the Mazor X™ Spinal Surgical System provides our surgeons with accuracy and precision unavailable anywhere else.
Mazor X Align allows surgeons to create a patient-specific correction plan using a virtual weight-bearing CT scan, computerized segmental range-of-motion and a virtual surgical toolbox.
The software, which is part of the Mazor X Pre-Op Analytics suite of tools, allows pre-operative assessment of the impact of correction plan on the patient’s posture post-operatively, considering final alignment parameters.
Independent clinical research has shown that minimally-invasive surgery with Mazor Robotics technology:1
- Increases accuracy
- Lowers complication rates
- Reduces postoperative pain
- Enables faster recovery
