Spine Surgery Q & A

What can I correct with minimally invasive spine surgery?

As technology advances, so do the possibilities for minimally invasive spine surgery. In the hands of the expert team at Polaris Spine & Neurosurgery Center, you can receive minimally invasive spine surgery to treat or correct conditions such as:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched spinal nerves

To determine whether or not minimally invasive spine surgery can work for your unique condition, your Polaris Spine & Neurosurgery team must perform a consultation that includes a physical exam, a discussion of your medical history, and tests like X-rays or a MRI scan.

Can I go home the same day after spine surgery?

Polaris Spine & Neurosurgery is the only practice in Georgia that offers robotic spine surgery in an outpatient setting. Using the ExcelsiusGPS™ Globus robotic surgery system, the team can perform your spine surgery and send you home all in one day.

In addition to same-day release, robotic spine surgery offers a myriad of advantages, including:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring and smaller scars
  • Higher accuracy and better patient outcomes
  • Faster recovery times

Robotic spine surgery also exposes you and your team to much less radiation than other minimally invasive surgery procedures.

How does spine surgery with the ExcelsiusGPS Globus system work?

The ExcelsiusGPS™ Globus surgery system works using a combination of robotics and navigation technology. 

Before performing your surgery, your team uploads a CT image of your body onto the system. The team uses this imaging to determine all of the details of your procedure, such as where they need to make an incision, or if you’re receiving an implant, the right size implant for you.

When it’s time to perform surgery, ExcelsiusGPS’s™navigation system uses this information, and a live, 3D representation of your anatomy, to guide its rigid robotic arm. 

ExcelsiusGPS Globus technology allows your team to take minimally invasive surgery to the next level, with smaller, more precise incisions and exact hardware placement.

Polaris Spine & Neurosurgery Center always airs on the side of nonoperative spine treatment. However, if you require spine surgery, the team is ready to support you in a collaborative, innovative environment. To schedule your consultation, call or book online today.
