Synthetic cervical disc alternative surgical procedure has grow to be an efficient and predominant remedy methodology for cervical illness, which has grow to be a extra widespread and major problem for individuals with sedentary work. To enhance cervical disc alternative surgical procedure considerably, a 6-DOF parallel bone-grinding robotic is developed for cervical bone-grinding by picture navigation and surgical plan. The bone-grinding robotic together with mechanical design and low stage management is designed. The bone-grinding robotic navigation is realized by optical positioning with spatial registration coordinate system outlined. And a parametric robotic bone-grinding plan and excessive stage management have been developed for airplane grinding for cervical prime endplate and tail endplate grinding by a cylindrical grinding drill and spherical grinding for 2 articular surfaces of bones by a ball grinding drill. Lastly, the surgical circulation for a robot-assisted cervical disc alternative surgical procedure process is current. The ultimate experiments outcomes verified the important thing applied sciences and efficiency of the robot-assisted surgical procedure system idea excellently, which factors out a promising scientific software with larger operability. Lastly, examine improvements, examine limitations, and future works of this current examine are mentioned, and conclusions of this paper are additionally summarized additional. This bone-grinding robotic continues to be within the preliminary stage, and there are various issues to be solved from a scientific viewpoint. Furthermore, the method is promising and may give an excellent help for surgeons in future scientific work.
