NEWPORT NEWS, Va., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Mark W. McFarland performed the first outpatient lumbar fusion on the Peninsula using the Medacta MySpine® patient-specific navigation system. The outpatient surgery on the L4-S1 was performed on a 42-year-old female at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital in Newport News, Va.
“I’m delighted to bring this cutting-edge technology for patient-specific pre-operative spine navigation to the Peninsula,” said Mark W. McFarland, spine surgeon at Orthopaedic and Spine Center. “Using a CT scan of their lumbar spine, my patients get a strategically planned spine surgery customized to their specific anatomy, which reduces their surgical and radiation exposure while helping to maximize surgical accuracy. The procedure is tissue and muscle-sparing and allows for smaller incisions, less blood loss, faster recovery, and uncompromised fusion rates, all of which are extremely beneficial for my patients.”
