Spine Surgery Q & A
What can I correct with minimally invasive spine surgery?
As technology advances, so does the world of possibilities for minimally invasive spine surgery. In the hands of the expert team at Legacy Brain & Spine, you can receive minimally invasive spine surgery to treat or correct a wide range of spine conditions, including:
Pinched spinal nerves
To determine whether minimally invasive spine surgery can work for your individual condition, your Legacy Brain & Spine team will perform a consultation that includes a physical exam, a discussion of your medical history, and diagnostic tests such as X-rays or an MRI scan. Based on the results of that consultation and after discussing available options, you and your team will make a shared decision on the best approach to treatment.

How does spine surgery with the Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ system work?
The Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ surgery system works using a combination of robotics and advanced navigation technology. It enables your operating team to upload a computed tomography (CT) image of your body onto the system before initiating the surgery and transform that image into a visual guide, indicating with extreme precision where to make an incision or, if you are receiving an implant, what the right size implant is for you.
When it is time to perform the surgery, the Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ navigation system uses this information and a live, 3D representation of your anatomy appears to guide its stable robotic arm. This vanguard technology allows your team to take minimally invasive surgery to the next level by making smaller, more precise incisions and exact hardware placement.
At Legacy Brain & Spine, we always prioritize non-surgical treatment first. However, if your condition does require spine surgery, our team is ready to support you in a collaborative, innovative environment. To schedule a consultation, call or book online today.
