Neurologic Robot equipment

Robotic-assisted Neurosurgery

The ExcelsiusGPS™ with Excelsius3D, a robotic navigation platform, is  is the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate trajectory alignment during cranial and spinal surgeries.

Minimally invasive surgical techniques aided by the ExcelsiusGPS™ provide several benefits over traditional neurologic surgery. Thanks to the navigation-guided incisions, surgeries result in less tissue damage, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery and smaller scars. The equipment can be used for procedures such as neck and lower back surgery, scoliosis correction, fracture repairs and others.
