Where Your Spine Is Concerned, Surgeons Demand Precise Navigation.

The Excelsius GPS robot provides spine surgeons with the precision that is absolutely required in spine surgery. Avoiding damage to surrounding nerves and tissue spells the difference between positive patient outcomes or unnecessary complications.
Specifically, this exciting new surgical system provides our spine surgeons with greatly improved visualization of the spine and surrounding anatomy, allowing for smaller incisions as well as the precise navigation required for the installation of spine hardware such as screws or braces.

In addition, the Excelsius robotic assistant streamlines the surgical workflow by ending reliance on multiple x-rays and the consequent excess radiation exposure during surgery. reduces radiation exposure to surgeons and staff.

The new system delivers better surgical outcomes with shorter recovery time and improved patient safety. Fatima is one of just two hospitals in Rhode Island offering robot-assisted spine surgery.
