STATEMENT: On Column Day, Dr. Manuel de la Torre Gutiérrez commemorates the first Robotic Suite in Spain

Madrid, October 16

Team de la Torre has managed to bring together, for the first time in Spain, a set of complex neurosurgical systems that complement each other in the operating room and offer certainty never seen before. Inspired by the human arm, an advanced system simplifies interventions, frees both of the neurosurgeon's hands, eliminates human error and automatically positions the best solutions in both spinal surgery and craniocerebral surgery.

The Column Day that is celebrated today is accompanied this year by the arrival in Spain of the first Robotic Suite by Equipo de la Torre and its greatest exponent; the well-known doctor Manuel de la Torre Gutiérrez. The future of neurosurgery has been present in Spain through a very adaptable and versatile robotic system that allows automatic alignment in both spinal surgery and craniocerebral surgery: tumors, biopsies, hydrocephalus and functional surgery (epilepsy and Parkinson's). Doctor Manuel de la Torre Gutiérrez, prestigious international neurosurgeon and head of the Neurosurgery Unit of Equipo de la Torre in Madrid, affirms that the system available for the first time in Spain is a pioneer of a different and very advanced way of approaching spine and craniocerebral surgery.Equipo de la Torre is an international pioneer of robotic spine surgery that will have a growing role in the coming years so that surgery can be adapted and approached more precisely than the human being without ignore, as is logical, its necessary guideline and criterion. "By reducing the movement of the patient's anatomy, explains Dr. Manuel de la Torre Gutiérrez, we can improve the precision of the intervention in all its phases. Likewise, once the screws are placed, the system allows an intraoperative scan to be performed on the same operating room to ensure the exact placement of each screw in its place." Regarding the spine surgery whose day is celebrated today, the system allows you to choose the best trajectory for the screw, which is planned by the software by analyzing the image of each patient . Likewise, it allows automated imaging and planning of screw fixation before or during the spinal intervention with an exact adjustment of its alignment. The robotic arm that is here to stay is very flexible and is easily installed on the operating table. . The system works in an integrated manner with one of the best browsers that exist and an image acquisition robot, thus forming the first Robotic Suite available in Spain. Through a minimal incision, a fixed reference is placed on the patient's spinous process and a 3D scanner is made that registers the patient and allows real-time navigation of the robotic arm and other instruments. The system records and acquires intraoperative images that allow real-time navigation. He then plans the best and most accurate trajectory, aligns himself with it, and maintains his position so that the neurosurgeon can focus on the anatomy of the intervention with both hands free. Team de la Torre continues its path of excellence in its headquarters located at the Vithas la Milagrosa University Hospital in Madrid and at the Vithas Aravaca University Hospital and commemorates it on Column Day.
