Dr. Kevin Vaught performs 1st MIS SI joint fusion with Mazor X: 5 highlights


Neurosurgeon Kevin Vaught, MD, of Regional Brain and Spine in Cape Girardeau, Mo., became the first neurosurgeon in the U.S. to perform a SI joint fusion using the Mazor X system, according to KFVS 12.

Here are five highlights:


1. Regional Brain and Spine acquired the system in early August, making it the first hospital in Missouri to integrate the Mazor X platform.


2. By using the Mazor X patients experience less pain and blood loss, smaller incisions, shorter hospitalization and a faster recovery time.


3. Mazor X also eliminates a patient's exposure to radiation during surgery.


4. Dr. Vaught is a board certified neurosurgeon and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and American Association of Neurological Surgeons.


5. Previously, Dr. Vaught served as chief of staff at the Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.
