Spokane, Wash.-based Inland Neurosurgery & Spine's eight neurosurgeons started using Globus Medical's ExcelsiusGPS surgical robot, the Spokane Journal reported July 1.

The $1.5 million robot came from a donation from Providence Health Care Foundation of Eastern Washington. The surgeons started using the robot in the beginning of the year.

So far, the practice has completed more than 40 surgeries with the robot, and most of the cases were spinal fusions. ExcelsiusGPS assists surgeons with drilling and screw placement in spine surgery; it can reduce incision size and require less manipulation of healthy tissues.
