Mayo specialists employ robotic technology for surgery in the thoracic and lumbar spine. The system can be applied to small, minimally invasive procedures and more-complex open surgeries for oncologic or spinal deformity.

The wide range of spinal deformity treated at Mayo Clinic encompasses all forms of scoliosis and kyphosis, high-grade spondylolisthesis, and cervical spine and post-laminectomy deformity, as well as revision surgeries.
