Park Place Surgical Hospital and Louisiana Orthopaedic Specialists held a joint press conference on Thursday to unveil a new technology that will improve spine surgeries.

The Surgical Spine Robot is being used for the first time in the world outside of a few selected University Hospitals (none of which are located in Louisiana.)

The robot is expected to increase accuracy and allow surgeons to pre-plan procedures.

“Robotic spine surgery is a game changer. Patients who have significant back pain, nerve pain, sciatica or numbness in their lower extremities and haven’t had success with non-operative treatment, have options. We are proud to be the first surgeons in the state to use the Globus and provide world-class, revolutionary care here in Acadiana,“ said Dr. Lon Baronne of Louisiana Orthopaedic Specialists. He and Dr. Neil Romero are the only two orthopedic spine surgeons trained to operate using the new robot in the state.
