Predictable, precise guided surgery
Mazor robot offers the perfect combination of science and art
Not all community-based health systems offer minimally invasive brain and spine surgery options to patients. At Lakeland Health, these leading-edge techniques require a much smaller incision than traditional surgeries, potentially resulting in:
- Reduced disturbance to normal tissue
- Less blood loss
- Less postsurgical pain
- Faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stays
- Smaller scars
More Time on Your Side
With minimally invasive procedures, many of the operations are performed as same-day surgeries. Other patients may be able to go home a day or two less than traditional open surgeries.
The Right Tools in the Right Hands
Minimally invasive brain and spine procedures at Lakeland are performed by a board-certified physician using specialized surgical instruments, including endoscopes. In the doctor’s skilled hands, these small, tube-like tools produce superior video images from inside the surgical site as well as instrument insertion.
We also use CT- or MRI-guided neuro-navigation techniques. These allow for the smallest incisions possible and the localization of tissue targets with maximum precision.
