January 22, 2018 — On Jan. 8, 2018, Robotics Outpatient Center, Los Angeles (ROC-LA), became the first outpatient surgery center in the United States to purchase the Globus ExcelsiusGPS system for robotic surgery guidance and navigation.
Graham Mouw, M.D., spinal neurosurgeon of ROC-LA, stated that, "ExcelsiusGPS combines the benefits of spinal navigation and robotics into one technology. Spinal navigation provides real-time imaging of patient's anatomy, similar to GPS. Robotics allows the integration of navigation and a robotic arm to the surgeon's plan…Surgeries can now be performed with better accuracy and safety than ever before!"
Garrett Matsunaga, M.D., director of robotics at ROC-LA, who has performed over 1,500 urological robotic surgeries over the last 11 years, stated, "This platform technology is designed to increase safety and accuracy within the operating room, as is my experience with robotics."
