Artis Zeego. The surgery center at Johnson City Medical Center is a state of the art facility designed to offer access to the latest surgical technology for our patients. Our surgery center offers the Artis Zeego imaging system, which allows the surgeon to see the inside of the patient in three dimensions without having to do open surgery. This allows us to complete complex endovascular procedures, resulting in better patient outcomes, shorter hospital stays and less risk of complications.

Mazor X™ Spinal Surgical System. The Mazor X system by Mazor Robotics is only offered at a handful of hospitals around the country, and Johnson City Medical Center has the only one in the state of Tennessee.

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 increases accuracy, lowers complication rates, reduces postoperative pain and enables faster recovery.*

O-Arm Surgical Imaging System photo

The O-Arm Surgical Imaging System is a multi-dimensional surgical imaging platform that is optimized for use in spine, orthopedic and trauma-related surgeries. It provides real-time, intra-operative imaging of a patient’s anatomy with high quality images. By using this technology, surgeons are able to perform less invasive procedures and confirm the precision of advanced surgical procedures before the patient leaves the OR.
