Inspired by the human arm, the world's most advanced robotic system in spinal and craniocerebral surgery simplifies interventions, frees both of the neurosurgeon's hands, eliminates human error and automatically positions the best solutions in both spinal and craniocerebral surgery

Madrid, March 28, 2024.- The future of neurosurgery has been present in Spain through Cirq, a very adaptable and versatile robotic system for the operating room that allows automatic alignment in both spine surgery and craniocerebral surgery: tumors , biopsies, hydrocephalus and functional surgery (epilepsy and Parkinson's).

Doctor Manuel de la Torre Gutiérrez, prestigious neurosurgeon worldwide 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 in the world in a different way. and very advanced in addressing spinal and craniocerebral surgery. For more information 911 089 090 or C/ Modesto Lafuente, 14 28010 Madrid.

Regarding spine surgery, 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.

It is a very flexible robotic arm that is easily installed on the operating table, and works integrated with the Curve navigator and the Loop-X image acquisition robot, thus forming the first Brainlab 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. It then plans the best and most accurate trajectory, aligns itself with it, and maintains its position so that the surgeon can focus on the anatomy of the procedure with both hands free.

The robotic spine surgery pioneered by Equipo de la Torre in Spain will play an important role in the coming years because it can repeat steps and adapt each surgery more precisely than a human being. "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 we have placed the screws, the system allows us to perform an intraoperative scan in the same operating room to ensure the exact placement of each screw in its place.

Robotic surgery is already part of the Neurosurgery Unit of Equipo de la Torre at the Vithas la Milagrosa University Hospital in Madrid and at the Vithas Aravaca University Hospital and allows us to achieve a degree of accuracy never seen before in all types of surgery. spine and craniocerebral and especially in the minimally invasive.
