Got back problems? A new machine could help you!

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A state-of-the-art machine could help anyone with back problems in the Yakima area.

It's called the "O-Arm" device.

Starting next week, it'll help doctors perform spinal surgery at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.

The machine uses 3D pictures to help surgeons pinpoint where to operate.

Doctors tell us a millimeter can be the difference between pain and recovery.

The "O-Arm" machine cost more than a million dollars.

Only a handful of other hospitals have the device in Washington.
