ARMDiagnosis and coordination of care for spine conditions can be challenging for patients and their primary care providers. At Melbourne Regional Medical Center, we streamline this process,with the most state-of the-art, robotic-assisted, minimally invasive spine care surgery, including the first-in-the region Medtronic Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform for Spine Surgery and the Medtronic O-arm™ Surgical Imaging System, to reduce radiation exposure and time in surgery for patients.

Minimally-invasive procedures with their smaller incisions can pose a challenge to surgeons due to the limited view of the patient’s anatomy. The Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform helps to overcome this challenge with a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics that gives the surgeon comprehensive information and visualization before the surgery starts. Consequently, the Platform supports surgeons’ commitment to operate with precision. 

Minimally-invasive surgery has been a major focus in recent years, often providing the most advanced technologies along with high quality care for patients.

MAZORMelbourne Regional Medical Center has established its reputation as a leader in spine surgery with its advanced technologies and excellence in patient care.  The Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform helps us to continue our leadership in spine surgery excellence.

 Our Spine Coordinator works with providers and patients to coordinate treatment from referral through recovery. From the first visit, we collaborate with each patient to decide on the best treatment option. Often, this is not surgery. See below for examples of the range of treatments available.

We are committed to providing the highest level of care and helping you get back to living a healthy, active life.
