Robotic-Assisted Surgery and Navigation in Deformity Surgery.

Deformity surgery is advancing quickly with the use of three-dimensional navigation and robotics. In spinal fusion, the use of robotics improves screw placement accuracy and reduces radiation, complications, blood loss, and recovery time. Currently, there is limited evidence showing that robotics is better than traditional freehand techniques. Most studies favoring robotics are small and retrospective due to the novelty of the technology in deformity surgery. Using these systems can also be expensive and time-consuming. Surgeons should use these advancements as tools, but not rely on them to replace surgical experience, anatomy knowledge, and good judgment.
