Dr. Lane Spero now offers minimally invasive, robotic spine procedures

Dr. Lane Spero, orthopedic and neurosurgical specialist at Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates, is now offering minimally invasive, robotic-assisted cervical and lumbar procedures using the Globus Medical and Stealth Navigation systems.

Performed at The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain, these robotic-assisted procedures are available to qualified spine patients meeting specific criteria.

“Procedures using this system provide patients with many benefits, including a quicker recovery than traditional procedures and less potential for postoperative complications,” Dr. Spero says. “The added capacity for precision also allows for more preservation of healthy tissue, which plays a part in helping patients have restored function as well as significantly less pain in recovery.”
