ExcelsiusGPS™ Robotic Navigation Spine Surgery

Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists is the first ever to offer ExcelsiusGPS™ Robotic Navigation Spine Surgery in Mississippi

ExcelsiusGPS™ is the next revolution in robotic spine surgery designed to optimize patient recovery through minimally invasive spine surgery. This platform technology is designed to increase safety and accuracy within the operating room. ExcelsiusGPS™ provides improved visualization of patient anatomy throughout the procedure to help optimize patient treatment. The system is designed to streamline surgical workflow and reduce overall radiation exposure to surgeons and staff.

Minimally Invasive Procedures Could Potentially Result In:

  • Smaller scars
  • Less blood loss
  • Less muscle damage
  • Faster recovery

How Does ExcelsiusGPS™ Work?

ExcelsiusGPS™ is designed to improved accuracy and optimize patient care by using robotics and navigation, much like a GPS in your car.

On the day of surgery medical images are taken and imported into ExcelsiusGPS™. The surgeon uses these images to determine the size and placement of implants and creates a patient plan based on your anatomy. This is used to guide the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of your spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeon uses this pathway or route to accurately place the implants using instruments.

Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgeon and staff to monitor. This display allows the surgeon to view live feedback during your procedure for more precise implant placement.

Combining Robotic Guidance & Navigation

  • Robotic Guidance involves the placement of instruments and implants through a rigid robotic arm that orients the surgeon along a guided pathway.
  • Navigation provides continuous feedback and visualization of instrument and implant positioning with respect to patient anatomy.
