The first robot-assisted spinal fusion in Prince George's County was performed by specialists at UM Capital Region Health.

During this advanced procedure, surgeons use a robot to identify the location of vertebrae in the spine before making an incision.

Surgeons are then able to perform the surgery with greater precision and accuracy.
