Marios Lykissas, MD, presents Spine Journal Outstanding Paper, “Nerve Injury and Recovery after Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion With and Without Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 Augmentation: A Cohort Controlled Study” at the 28th Annual Meeting of the North American Spine Society in New Orleans, LA, USA.
The Spine Journal Outstanding Paper Awards: Marios Lykissas, MD
Amazing technological advances in spine surgery have occurred over the past few years: performing spine surgery with the first and only Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ robot in New York City. The robot allows surgery to be performed with enhanced precision and accuracy through a minimally invasive approach. The robot can improve patient safety and shorten recovery time. Robotic spine surgery may be an option for you.
Excelsius GPS SPINE ROBOT resembles the most recent achievement in robotics in medical practice worldwide. We are pleased to announce the use of Excelsius GPS SPINE ROBOT for first time in Europe since Metropolitan Hospital is the only center in the European Union that has this advanced robotic technology. Dr. Lykissas has followed robotic spine surgery from its first steps of development in the United States and has already use robotic technology in many of his international patients.
The world of surgery is changing with this new innovative intraoperative imaging system, which is considered a landmark in modern medicine.
The fully portable O-arm CT system is a multi-dimensional platform already used by major surgical centers worldwide. It constitutes a milestone in surgical imaging. Combined with a surgical navigation system, it is the only device that can offer surgeons 100% accuracy for detecting and managing even the most sensitive lesions.
