    ROBOTIC ASSISTED SPINE SURGERY TRAINING FOR DOCTORS, Interview with Dr. Melanie B. Kinchen, recently trained with Dr. Richard Francis in the use of the Mazor Robotics Surgical Guidance System for Robotic Assisted Spine Surgery.

    Listen to the live interview with Dr. Melanie Kinchen as she shares her experience and opinions of her recent training in the use of this cutting edge technology.

    In Dr. Kinchen’s words….. “I really enjoyed the training. My initial thought was that it would be a slower learning process and that it may not be a necessity to the field but actually I can see the benefits of using it for the more complicated cases certainly, and even for some of the more simpler ones.”

    For patients who require back or spine surgery, robotic assisted guidance systems are one of the latest advances in technology that have transformed spine surgery from a freehand operation to a state-of-the-art procedure with highly accurate precision.

    Dr. Kinchen is specially trained in both anterior and minimally invasive surgical approaches to the thoracic and lumbar spine. She is widely recognized as an expert in adult spinal deformity, reconstruction, and failed back surgery.
