Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Maryland to perform spine surgery using the Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform. The tool brings surgeons new capabilities when treating patients with debilitating spine conditions.
The platform gives surgeons planning tools, analytics and guidance during surgery, allowing greater precision when treating scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, hunchback and many other spine conditions. Neurosurgeon Dr. Amin Amini performed Shady Grove’s first operation using the platform in February. Shady Grove is one of the only hospitals in the Washington, D.C., region with the system.
