Through an initiative spearheaded by Neuroaxis surgeons, St. Francis Hospital is the first on Long Island to offer robotic- and navigation-assisted spine surgery for chronic neck and back pain and complex spine injuries. Doctors Johnson, Madhok and Chen are Catholic Health System of Long Island’s first surgeons to undergo extensive training on this technology—the Globus ExcelsiusGPS—and are excited to start using it for state-of-the-art minimally invasive procedures. This technology allows for greater accuracy and optimizes patient care by creating a smaller incision, reducing radiation exposure, decreasing blood loss and shortening hospital stays—all resulting in a quicker recovery.
Neuroaxis is proud to be once again on the cutting-edge of innovation in spine neurosurgery.
