The Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery at Reston Hospital Center is rolling out its new Visiting Clinician Program for robotic-assisted spine surgery.

Here are five highlights:

1. Using the Mazor X Robotic System, the program is designed to allow spine surgeons from around the world to learn about the technology while also developing best practices for implementation in other facilities or programs.

2. The program puts visiting surgeons through a case observation as well as a training curriculum.

3. Christopher Good, MD, will lead the program. Surgeons who enroll in the program will get one-on-one instruction with Dr. Good about using the robotic surgery system.

4. Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery designed the program to expose surgeons to the daily operations of running a comprehensive robotic surgery program from the administrative perspective while gaining insight on surgical cases.

5. "Our research is showing that Mazor robotic technology can decrease radiation to patients in the operating room, as well as improve the safety for patients having spine surgery," Dr. Good said in a statement. "The launch of this Visiting Clinician Program at Reston Hospital Center is just one more step toward ensuring that our patients have the safest and most advanced treatment available to them."
