Spine surgery is challenging especially in patients with deformity or those who require complex revision surgeries. Robotic-assisted spine surgery systems have shown some promising initial results by increasing the accuracy of spinal instrumentation and thereby reducing potential complications, decreasing operative time, and reducing radiation exposure. The currently available robotic systems may show particular benefit in minimally invasive approaches and complex cases. Further experience and rigorous studies will be required before the full potential of robotic-assisted systems can be realized in the spine surgery field.
