I am excited to live in 2018 where as a spine surgeon I can use the current available technology to its fullest and where on a daily basis new advances of technology are taking place. Spine surgery has progressed significantly and especially so, with advancement of minimally invasive spine surgery. The young spine surgeon can sneak into the canal, correct the problem, and sneak out; thereby inflicting minimal damage. This imparts faster recovery and less postoperative pain. Some patients go home the same day and take no pain medicine after surgery.
We have come to a point in history where we can replace most parts of the spine. Disc replacement has been in various stages of development over the past 20 years. There are some 15-year studies out of Europe and some younger studies out of United States with very promising results. Neck disc replacement has especially been shown to have better satisfaction rates and earlier return to work than fusion surgery. Lumbar disc replacement lags in a quality of research but is another very promising technology. We are able to remove cancers and block and replace them with 3D-printed bone. In my armamentarium, are metal and plastic cages that can be placed through very small incisions and once in place can be deployed where by oscillating its mechanism, the cage will expend in 1, 2, or 3 planes. This can fill larger bony defects and replace the bony component of most aspects of the human spine.

Robotic spine surgery has already changed the precision of modern day minimally invasive spine surgery. Historically, placement of instrumentation in order to stabilize the spine or correct and hold a deformed spine would require a large incision. Muscles would have to be stripped off the bone in order to find a perfect starting point for placement of screws, for example. Even still, a significant amount of guessing was involved because of a three-dimensional shape of the human vertebrae.
Screw placement accuracy improved with the use of x-rays, neuromonitoring, and computer guidance. All of the above methods have allowed regeneration of spine surgeons to use smaller, more sparing incisions, and a less invasive technique. The most recent innovation improves on the past by increasing the accuracy of placement to 99.9% by using a CAT scan and some intraoperative data. This is a very promising technology that can make a six-hour operation with a 2% error rate into a two-hour operation with a 1% error rate. This is a huge improvement when it comes to spine surgery.
