Hoag Becomes First Hospital on West Coast to Offer Advanced Minimally-Invasive Robotic Navigation Platform for Spine Surgery

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Hoag’s Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute (PFNI) today announced it is the first on the West Coast to utilize the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform, the most advanced robotic-assisted, minimally invasive spine surgery option.

The Mazor combines 3D pre-operative planning tools and analytics with intra-operative trajectory precision to provide surgeons with comprehensive information of the best approach and visualization of the target before the surgery starts. This new technology allows surgeons to operate with precision and efficiency, reducing need for x-rays, and minimizes pain and recovery time after surgery.

“This revolutionary technology provides our patients and clinical team with the most advanced minimally-invasive tool available,” said Burak Ozgur, M.D., chief of service for the Neurosurgery Spine Program at the Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute. “This robotic instrument allows the surgeon to be in complete control, but gives them the superior benefit of 3D-guided navigation in one easy-to-use tool.”
