Mazor X™

If you live with chronic back pain and have ever been told you need spine surgery, minimizing pain and a quick recovery are priorities. The Ayer Neuroscience Institute is providing more advanced treatment options for spine surgery than ever before with the Mazor XTM robotic surgical system.

Hartford HealthCare is the first in the state of Connecticut and the Northeast to offer this advanced technology.

Conditions Treated with Mazor XTM

The Mazor X TM system is used to treat conditions like spinal stenosis, scoliosis and spondylolisthesis. Patients with these conditions often suffer with debilitating symptoms like:

  • Low back pain
  • Leg pain
  • Sciatica
  • Uneven legs, hips or shoulders
  • Abnormal gait
  • Breathing difficulties when the rib cage puts pressure on the lungs

Benefits of Mazor XTM Robotic Spine Surgery

Mazor X TM incudes three integrated processes – Planning, Guidance and Verification – to assure greater predictability and precision during your procedure. This technology has benefits for patients:

  • Gives surgeons the ability to pre-plan your spine surgery using 3D software to create the ideal procedure for every patient’s individualized condition
  • Guides the surgeon’s tools according to the pre-determined blueprint to place implants safely and accurately
  • Provides a sophisticated visualization system so surgeons can more accurately place hardware during spine procedures
  • May reduce the risk of exposure to radiation from imaging typically used during surgery
  • Minimizes the likelihood of needing future back surgeries thanks to enhanced precision
  • Preserves surrounding healthy tissues and may result in fewer complications, less pain and quicker return to daily activities

This technology is available at Hartford Hospital and MidState Medical Center.
