North Fulton Hospital offers new robotic spine surgery



ROSWELL, Ga. — North Fulton Hospital is one of the first in Atlanta to offer adults needing spine surgery a minimally invasive procedure using the Mazor Robot.

This advanced technology, combined with the hospital’s board certified orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons, may provide less rehabilitation from surgery and get patients back to normal activities quickly.

The Renaissance Mazor Robotic spine system overcomes the issue of multiple x-rays, providing patients with the best possible clinical results with minimal intraoperative radiation.

“The Mazor robot is great because it allows for pre-operative planning and can save time in the operating room,” said Dr. Jason W. Velez, orthopedic surgeon at North Fulton Hospital. “I’m very excited about being able to use the robot during surgeries on patients with spinal deformaties that might have been inoperable otherwise.”
