TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center in Smyrna, Tenn., added the ExcelsiusGPS robotic system for spine surgery, according to a July 1 announcement in Rutherford Source.

Juris Shibayama, MD, debuted the system April 1, and John Burleson, MD, also performs cases with it.

The navigation system creates a preoperative scan and helps surgeons visualize a patient’s anatomy in real-time during procedures.

“It provides improved visualization of patient anatomy to optimize patient treatment, streamline the surgical workflow, and greatly reduce radiation exposure to surgeons and staff,” Dr. Shibayama said. “This technology is a win-win for the patient, our colleagues, and our hospital.”
