St. Joseph, Mich.-based Spectrum Health Lakeland added the Mazor X Stealth Edition robotic guidance platform, according to a Nov. 15 news release.

The spine surgery system features 3D preoperative implant planning and precise positioning of surgical instruments or implants during surgery, according to the release.

"Minimally-invasive surgery has been a major focus at Spectrum Health Lakeland for many years, as we know it can result in shorter hospital stays, faster healing and less pain for patients," Spectrum Health Lakeland neurosurgeon Rafeek Woods, MD, said. "The Mazor X Stealth Edition platform allows us to continue our leadership in spine surgery excellence."
