Radiation Exposure & Robotic Spine Surgery

Radiation exposure time is critical to patient health: Robotic spine surgery wins out. To learn more search Dr. Anthony Leone’s Knowledge Center.

Minimally invasive robotic spine surgery has been making great improvements in the spine surgery community with its high accuracy ratings and patient recovery. New studies have shown that robotic assisted surgeries have less reported blood loss when compared to fluoroscopic procedures. As if these advantages aren’t enough, minimally invasive robotic surgeries boast lower exposure to radiation compared to fluoroscopic surgeries. Overall, robotic-assisted surgical intervention has a leg up on specific traditional procedures involving fluoroscopy. With less exposure to radiation, patients can enjoy healthier procedures under the care of their doctor.
