Mazor Robotics Renaissance System
Florida Hospital Celebration Health is now home to the only Mazor Robotics Renaissance System in the state of Florida. Renaissance, Mazor Robotics' guidance system, enables surgeons to perform safer and more accurate spine surgeries. For patients, this means better clinical outcomes with less pain and fewer complications, enabling a faster recovery and return to daily activities.
State-of the-Art Treatment for Spine Conditions
Thousands of successful cases have been performed with Mazor Robotics systems, which are in daily use in leading medical centers worldwide. Independent scientific research has clinically validated its accuracy, including a recently published 14-center study demonstrating accuracy levels of 98.3%.* RenaissanceTM is used to treat patients suffering from debilitating back pain or limited range of motion caused by spinal deformities and degenerative conditions such as slipped vertebrae, scoliosis, and spinal nerve impingement (pinched nerves). To treat these conditions, surgeons use RenaissanceTM in procedures such as placing spinal implants in spinal fusion, injecting bone cement in vertebroplasties, and performing biopsies.
RenaissanceTM Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)
RenaissanceTM is transforming spine surgery by advancing surgical techniques from freehand methods to state-of-the art, minimally invasive guided procedures. In conventional open surgery, large incisions are made to expose the underlying tissues and spine for the surgeon's field-of-view. For patients, the clinical implications of large incisions are large scars, more damage to healthy tissue layers including muscles (which affects healing and recovery time), plus increased risk of complications such as infections and blood loss.
Unlike open surgery, in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), surgeons make small incisions that provide patients with several clinical benefits: less pain, fewer scars, fewer complications, and faster recovery. Small incisions also mean surgeons have a more limited field-of-view that can impact accuracy. Usually more intraoperative X-ray images are required during MIS procedures to compensate for this limited field-of-view.
Using RenaissanceTM in MIS helps surgeons overcome field-of-view limitations by pinpointing surgical tools to the exact anatomical location, without compromising accuracy, safety and without increasing the length of surgery or radiation levels. So, patients can enjoy the clinical benefits of MIS without the need for additional radiation or compromising on accuracy.
How It Works
Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision; and each patient's anatomy has unique challenges. Surgery with Mazor Robotics' RenaissanceTM enables surgeons to plan ahead before entering the operating room. During surgery it guides the surgeons according to the preoperative plan they created.
Surgeons use RenaissanceTM's advanced 3D planning software before surgery to create a unique surgical blueprint, which is the ideal surgery for each patient's condition. During surgery, the surgeon does the actual work; RenaissanceTM guides the surgeon's tools according to the surgical blueprint to place the implants safely, and with the highest level of accuracy in the exact preplanned locations. And since there is no need for additional X-rays during surgery, with RenaissanceTM there is less exposure to radiation than with other surgical treatments.
RenaissanceTM, 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. RenaissanceTM 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.
