Connecticut spine surgeon marks 100th robot-assisted spine surgery


Mitchell Garden, MD, of Torrington, Conn.-based Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, marked 100 spine surgeries with the ExcelsiusGPS robot.

The hospital bought the robot in 2019, according to a March 15 news release. It is used for spinal fusion and is designed for more precision in the operating room.

Dr. Garden lauded the technology for its use in minimally invasive procedures.

"Minimally invasive procedures using robotic guidance can mean less blood loss, less muscle damage and faster recovery," he said in the news release.
