Get this: More than 2,000 years ago the ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates, who’s known as the father of medicine, would tie patients to a ladder upside down to stretch out and straighten their spine. Ouch!
Medicine has come a long way since then. While some of society’s medical knowledge goes back thousands of years, much of what we know has been discovered only recently. That’s especially true for spinal care.
At Spine Specialists of Michigan, we strive to be on the cutting edge of optimal patient care. That’s why we use the state-of-the-art Mazor Robotics Renaissance Guidance System.
Though our innovative, FDA-approved mechanical system is not an option for every patient’s situation, it is viable for many kinds of operations on herniated discs, scoliosis, spinal fusions and more. And it works a whole lot better than that ladder used by Hippocrates!
If you have back pain and need an operation, here’s why you should ask your doctor about minimally-invasive robotic spine surgery:
