Mazor Robotics receives first order for Renaissance system with brain module


Mazor Robotics has announced that it has received the first order for its Renaissance system since the commercial launch of the brain surgery module.

The system was sold to Bryan Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA and will be utilised for spine and brain procedures. Bryan Medical Center is a 640-bed, not-for-profit, locally owned and governed health care organisation serving patients from throughout Nebraska, as well as parts of Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota and other states in the region.

“The first order for Renaissance with our brain surgery module is a new milestone for Mazor Robotics. The value proposition offered to our customers enabled our team to achieve the first system placement in the USA, less than three months after we commercially launched the brain application,” comments Ori Hadomi, chief executive officer. “The versatility of the Renaissance system enables surgeons and hospital administrators to deploy a single proven system for both brain and spine procedures.”

The company commercially launched the brain application at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) annual meeting in April 2014. Renaissance’s brain module is primarily used to assist with deep brain stimulation procedures to treat movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. Three other hospitals, including Littleton Adventist (Littleton, Colorado), were utilising the brain application during a pre-launch testing period and continue to use the system for brain surgeries.
