Houston Spine Surgeon Helps Patients with Robotic Assisted Surgery in the Treatment of Adult and Pediatric Spinal Deformity
Dr. Richard Francis of Spine Associates, a specialist in spinal surgery is renowned for using the Mazor Robotics System to treat patients with Scoliosis – an abnormal curved or crooked spine.
His specialty is in the treatment of spine deformities such as scoliosis, degenerative conditions, tumors, infections, sciatica, and metabolic diseases. Children and adults with the most challenging spinal conditions have regained their health and returned to normal lives thanks to Dr. Francis’ conservative, yet innovative treatment and his use of robotic assisted surgery at Spine Associates.
Dr. Francis is one of the “true leaders in the field of scoliosis care and treatment.” He is, in fact, one of the few surgeons in the nation that performs scoliosis revision surgery and reconstructive surgery on children and adults who have had unsuccessful treatment in the past. With the use of Mazor Robotics surgical guidance system in his practice, Dr. Francis shows a “leadership role in seeking out and adopting advanced technologies that place additional options on the table when deciding on the best course of treatment for each individual patient.” He is one of the first surgeons in the nation asked to perform the artificial disc replacement and to use robotic assistance in spine surgery.
When asked of his specialty and his success rate in treating scoliosis, Dr. Francis responded with certitude, “Pediatric and adult spine deformity surgery is a niche area even within our specialty. At Spine Associates, our results have been nothing short of impressive. Some have even said breathtaking. Even after so many years, I still get excited when I see the change in our patients on the first visit after surgery. Our stated goal is get each person back to normal, physically, functionally and cosmetically.”
Dr. Francis recognizes that spine issues often lead to debilitating pain. Therefore, he has expanded his practice to offer comprehensive services to his patients in spine and pain care at Spine Associates.
