TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville is the first and only hospital in Middle Tennessee to add the Mazor X surgical assurance platform to its award-winning orthopedic and spine surgery program. The Mazor X system combines pre-operative planning tools with guidance during surgeries, giving TriStar Skyline patients the most advanced spinal surgery options available. This system is the first and only in Middle Tennessee for adult spine patients.
According to Steve Otto, CEO of TriStar Skyline, "Providing the most advanced technologies combined with the highest quality for our patients is top priority. We are pleased to add the new Mazor X system to further enable our surgeons to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients."
As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed on minimizing trauma to the body during surgery and expediting a return to function through the use of minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive procedures can mean less pain, less blood loss, smaller incisions, shorter hospitalizations and shorter recovery time for patients. The Mazor X system utilizes a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics that give the surgeon information before the surgery even starts. As a result, the surgeon may operate with greater precision, efficiency and confidence.
