JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Onslow Memorial Hospital announced that it now has the Mazor X™ Stealth Robotic Guidance System, which offers a minimally invasive approach to spinal surgery.
Onslow Memorial is one of only four hospitals in North Carolina to have the technology.
“In the first patient we did, we were doing a two-level fusion and it took us about 2 and ½ hours and she was out of the hospital in a day and a half.” Dr. Ashraf Guirgues
Mazor X provides surgeons with 3D planning, guidance, and tools that enhance patient results.
“I am feeling great. I have had two previous back surgeries, This was by far the best recovery time I’ve had with any surgery.” Aurelia Green, the first patient at Onslow Memorial to receive surgery using the Mazor X Stealth System
Patient benefits of the Mazor X include:
- Less trauma to the body, reducing pain and shortening recovery time.
- Increased accuracy, decreasing complications and cutting down on time spent in the hospital.
- Better preserving healthy tissue and prevention for future spinal surgeries.
- Reduced radiation exposure, providing a safer environment for the surgeon and patient.
