Cutting-Edge Technology for Orthopedic Surgery

In addition to offering a wide range of orthopedic specialties, Ochsner LSU Health prides itself on using cutting-edge equipment and technology. Our surgeons are skilled in leading procedures that can be performed with the assistance of a robot, meaning our patients benefit from less invasive surgeries and quicker recovery times. Our program is leading orthopedic surgery in the region using the Medtronic Mazor Robot, a robotic surgical assurance platform for spine surgery.

Procedures that can be performed with the robot include:

  • Mid- to lower back fusions
  • Spine fractures
  • Complex scoliosis surgery
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sciatic nerve pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Spine tumors

Benefits of the Medtronic Mazor include:

  • Improved surgical accuracy
  • Custom patient-specific surgical plans
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less tissue trauma
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter operative times
  • Less risk for surgical complications
  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Less exposure to radiation
  • Shorter hospital stays

If you have questions about this technology, or any other surgical option at Ochsner LSU Health, be sure to talk with your surgeon.
