Question

  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems used for patients requiring spinal surgery?
  2. What is the cost-effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems used for patients requiring spinal surgery?

Key Message

The use of robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures, including spinal surgeries, has been on the rise over the past several years.
Systematic reviews and economic evaluations on the clinical and cost-effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems used for patients requiring spinal surgeries that do not involve pedicle screw placement are lacking.
