Globus Excelsius


Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas uses cutting-edge technology to provide the highest-quality of treatment to patients in Texas. We use the Globus ExcelsiusGPS® Robotic Navigation Platform, one of the first minimally invasive robotic platforms to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities. It combines the benefits of image versatility, real-time information, and multi-functional navigation resulting in precise trajectory alignment in spine surgery procedures.

The Globus Excelsius’ Imaging Versatility capabilities allows for visualization, preparation, and navigation of the patient anatomy in real-time. It offers three different imaging workflows to ensure a clear view of the anatomy:

  • Preoperative CT
  • Intraoperative CT
  • 2D Fluoroscopy

This innovative technology has helped Dr. Scott Kutz of Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas perform the most accurate and precise minimally invasive surgery procedures. The precise navigation and trajectory alignment allowed by the Globus Excelsius improves the quality of surgical placements such as Posterior Thoracic, Posterior Cervical, Sacroiliac, Posterior Lumbar, and Lateral Lumbar.

In addition, the ExcelsiusGPS® utilizes state-of-the-art force sensors to give surgeons the ability to apply the same amount of force as they would during a procedure. This has allowed robotic operators to perform surgical operations that were too problematic in the past.

The utilization of this world-class navigation platform increases spine surgery chances of success and reduces tissue damage, resulting in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
