INI is proud to be part of the first robot assisted spine surgery in Los Angeles performed at West Hills Hospital & Medical Center with neurosurgeon Amir Vokshoor MD and Dean Wilson PA.

MazorX by Mazor Robotics combines data-analytics to optimize performance in the operating room.  The MazorX robot uses a specialized CT scan to reconstruct a 3D rendering of the patients spine, which surgeons can use to pre-plan screw placements. Intra-op, the robot is temporarily secured to the patient's spine to adjust for any movement or repositioning. Based on software analysis from the pre-op CT and a secondary fluoroscopic image of the surgical region of the spine,  the surgical arm of the MazorX repositions for precision guidance during screw placement.
