The SpineAssist surgical robot is now available at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Plano and the Texas Back Institute, according to a Texas Health Resources news release.

The SpineAssist reports accuracy to less than half a millimeter and uses computer tomography-based 3D simulation of the patient's spine to allow surgeon planning before the procedure. The SpineAssist in Texas is one of three in the country.

SpineAssist technology can be used in biopsies, treating thoracic-lumbar fusion and vertebral compression fractures as well as to correct scoliosis. The technology includes a workstation for surgeons to pre-plan the procedures using the 3D technology on the patient's individual anatomy and the robotic arm which guides the surgeon during the procedure using the preoperative plan.
