Mazor X Robotic Guidance System


The Mazor X Robotic Guidance System improves accuracy, minimizes recovery time.

When it comes to spine surgery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, OrthoSC offers one of the most experienced teams in the world and the most state-of-the-art technology, providing patients with unparalleled precision and results. Gene Massey, MD of OrthoSC is now a surgeon in the state of South Carolina, using the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System for the 1st spinal procedure to achieve even better accuracy and minimize recovery time for back pain patients.

Dr. Massey at OrthoSC performs certain complex spine surgeries using the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System. This system allows him to pre-plan surgery in a three-dimensional field and helps guide the surgeon during surgery. The computer guidance allows superior accuracy.

Gene Massey, MD at OrthoSC is a highly trained and experienced spine surgeon. By utilizing the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System, he can continue to raise the bar on implant accuracy and precision during spinal surgery, resulting in better outcomes for patients.

With the robotic spinal surgery, doctors can plan the spine surgery before entering the operating room. That plan is then input into the Renaissance system, which helps provide the doctors with unparalleled precision, resulting in consistent, optimal results for spine surgery patients. In a study of 112 cases, compared to freehand surgery, Mazor Robotics technology[1] resulted in:

  • Improved implant accuracy
  • May have reduced fluoroscopy (56 percent reduction in this clinical case series)
  • Reduced complication rates, re-operations, and postop opioids
  • Reduced average length of stay

The Mazor X Robotic Guidance System has been used in thousands of spine procedures worldwide ranging from minimally-invasive surgery for degenerative disk disease to open surgery for scoliosis and other complex spinal deformity cases.
