Riverview Health recently became a leader in the field of robotic guidance and navigation with the purchase of ExcelsiusGPS. This new equipment assists surgeons by providing a real-time visualization and road map for implant placements based on each unique patient’s anatomy making spine surgeries as precise as possible.
“At Riverview Health, we’re committed to providing the highest quality care for our patients, which includes investing in the latest technologies,” said Seth Warren, president and CEO of Riverview Health. “We’re excited about the new opportunities ExcelsiusGPS brings to the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, robotics and navigation.”
ExcelsiusGPS is designed to increase safety and accuracy within the operating room. It provides improved visualization of patient anatomy throughout the procedure to help optimize patient treatment. It also streamlines surgical workflow and reduces overall radiation exposure to surgeons and staff. Because the technology enables minimally invasive procedures, there may be less blood loss, less muscle damage and a faster recovery.
Riverview Health is comprised of a full-service, 156-bed hospital in Noblesville and a hospital in Westfield with four—soon-to-be 20—beds.
