Referral to the tomography and even more to the X-ray - here it is a relic of the XX century. No need to spend time and nerves of the patient: tomography can be done when the patient is already asleep on operating table. Today's patient has a serious fracture: bone fragment threatens to damage his spinal cord. The risk of paralysis is very high. To fix it, surgeons will cling to the adjacent healthy vertebrae, inserting implants - titanium screws. Special rods will be used to secure implants and take the load, giving the injured vertebra a chance to recover. This operation is not new. However, the way of doing it is unique. And not only because of the new equipment, but how surgeons combine it to receive the desired outcome.
