Mazor Robotics Surgical Guidance System

Robotic guidance of surgical systems is now used by the surgeons of Neurosurgical Associates, PC. We are the first surgeons in Alabama to use the Renaissance Mazor Robotics Surgical System to help visualize and place spinal implants accurately and safely.

About Renaissance<sup>™</sup>

Renaissance, Mazor Robotics' surgical guidance system, is transforming spine surgery from freehand operations to highly-accurate, state-of-the-art procedures that raise the standard of care through better clinical outcomes. Renaissance™ is used to create a preoperative blueprint of the ideal surgery in a virtual 3D environment. This plan is then used to actively guide the surgeon during the procedure to precisely implement the predefined plan within 1.5mm accuracy.

Clinically validated

  • Over 2,000 surgeries with over 15,000 implants placed
  • Easily integrates into OR workflows
  • Highest level of accuracy with less radiation, even in complex cases

Based on surgeons' experience with Mazor Robotics' technology

  • 98.3% accuracy of 3,271 implants in 635 cases at 14 medical centers1
  • 99.6% accuracy of 1,815 implants in 120 scoliotic adolescents2
  • Compared to freehand surgeries, clinical outcomes with Mazor Robotics technology were significantly better (fewer complications, fewer reoperations, lower intraoperative x-ray exposure, and shorter length of stay)3

About Mazor Robotics
