Robotic Neurosurgery in Neurosurgery at UC Davis, California provides for Cranial, Spine, and Endovascular Procedures



Robotic neurosurgery provides superior care when people experience stroke, essential tremor, spinal injuries, cancer and more. UC Davis Health provides robotic surgery for cranial, spine, and endovascular procedures. Robot-assisted surgery is minimally invasive, enhancing patient and medical staff safety during procedures while promoting faster, better patient recovery. Surgical robots are often used across specialties and thus further drive interdisciplinary clinical care, research, and education. For example, the endovascular robot acquisition and surgical services are a joint venture of Neurological Surgery and Radiology and the spine robot supports the UC Davis Comprehensive Spine Program, led by Neurological Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Pain Management. Dr. Kia Shahlaie, Professor and Interim Chair of Neurological Surgery at UC Davis Health, is joined by Dr. Ben Waldau, Professor and Co-Director of the UC Stroke Consortium Robotics Workgroup, and Dr. Kee Kim, Professor and Chief of Spinal Neurosurgery and Co-Director of the UC Davis Spine Center in an overview of the UC Davis robotic neurosurgery program, the first comprehensive program in the region.
