Lone Tree, Colorado, April 25, 2017 - Sky Ridge Medical Center acquired the first Mazor X™ system in Colorado and a ten-state region for spine surgery. The Sky Ridge Spine and Total Joint Center, a recipient of the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval, strives to improve patient outcomes with advanced technology and surgical techniques.
As part of its commitment to providing exceptional clinical care, Sky Ridge surgeons are now performing spine surgeries with the Mazor X™ system, which increases the efficiency and safety of spine surgery.
"The Mazor X™ system is setting a new standard of care. It is introducing technologies that link the knowledge and proficiency of our surgeons with digital data and analysis, enabling us to transform spine surgery, increasing its predictability for patients, surgeons and hospital teams," said Susan Hicks, CEO, Sky Ridge Medical Center.
The Mazor X™ system creates a 3D model of the spinal cord that can be viewed from multiple angles. This 3D model helps surgeons identify potential challenges, better assess the patient’s anatomy to determine the best implants and develop a personalized care plan for each patient.
The system also includes tools that maximize stability during surgery. This, combined with imaging that increases the surgeon’s planning and visibility, results in increased precision with improved patient outcomes including:
- Fewer complications
- Greater accuracy
- Shorter surgeries
- Faster recovery times
The Sky Ridge Spine & Total Joint Center offers:
- Comprehensive team of specialists who provide personalized care before, during and after surgery.
- Experienced physicians who perform more spine surgeries than any other hospital in Colorado.
- Fellowship-trained neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons.
- Best recovery environment in Colorado.
- Most advanced technology, including minimally invasive surgery.
- State-of-the-art, dedicated facility with private entrance.
- Pre and post-operative education.
- Dedicated recovery floor with specialty-trained staff.
