Praveen Perni, MD, a spine surgeon with the American Health Network Bone and Spine Group, has become one of the first surgeons to use this robotic guidance and navigation device. 

It lets the doctor see inside the patient throughout the operation. This can result in less blood loss, less muscle damage and a faster recovery.*
