OrthoNeuro spine surgeon performs the first robotics-assisted minimally invasive 2-level lumbar interbody fusion in Central Ohio


Dr. Ying Chen, OrthoNeuro Neurosurgeon, completed the first robotics-assisted minimally invasive 2-level interbody fusion in Central Ohio. This surgical milestone occurred on October 28, 2019, at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital using the Globus Excelsius GPS Robotic Navigation System.

ExcelsiusGPS® is Globus Medical’s advanced technology solution designed to improve efficiency and enhance safety for patients, staff, and surgeons in the operating room. This innovative robotic navigation platform is the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate trajectory alignment in spine surgery.

“We are now able to offer the latest in minimally invasive techniques to benefit people with spine conditions” said Dr. Chen, “I’m excited for the future of this technology and what it means for my patients.”
