Riverview Health is also a leader in the field of robotic surgery using ExcelsiusGPS and is proud to be the first hospital in Indiana to offer this technology.

ExcelsiusGPS is a robotic spinal navigation system designed to increase safety and accuracy within the operating room. The robot allows surgeons to make smaller incisions, resulting in less muscle trauma and blood loss for the patient, as well as a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and less pain.

ExcelsiusGPS provides improved visualization of patient anatomy throughout the procedure to help optimize patient treatment. It also streamlines surgical workflow and reduces overall radiation exposure to surgeons and staff.
