Mazor Robotics’ Renaissance System installed at Georgia ASC and at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Illinois

In June 2018, GNS Surgery Center, an affiliate of United Surgical Partners International, announced that it has completed their first procedure with the Mazor Robotics Renaissance system. GNS is the first Ambulatory Surgical Center in Georgia to offer it’s patients spine surgery using this exciting technology and Lutheran General became the first hospital in the state of Illinois to offer the state-of-the-art technology Surgical Robotic Guidance System.

The Mazor X™ robotics system integrates and streamlines three complex processes providing surgeons with more advanced spinal surgery options. Before entering the operating room, spine surgeons can utilize 3D planning to design an optimal surgery using a 3D simulation of a patient’s spine. Computer analytics then provide surgeons with data for procedure planning and intra-operative guidance during surgery. Using the robotic system, surgeons can operate with more precision and efficiency.

“We’re thrilled to be the first hospital in Illinois to offer this state of the art technology to our patients,” said Cindy Mahal-van Brenk, Vice President of Surgical Services at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. “As a leader in spine surgery, delivering exceptional care and better overall outcomes for our patients is always our top priority. The Mazor X™ system will allow our spine surgeons to operate more precisely and effectively, so they are able to deliver the highest quality care to their patients with spine conditions.”

The robotics system delivers its greatest technological benefits to spine surgeons performing complex spine reconstructions as well as minimally invasive procedures as accuracy is paramount for these cases. The pre-planning feature of the robotics system allows for better outcomes as a result of improved accuracy and reproducibility. Less invasive surgeries have smaller incisions which typically mean less pain, less blood loss, and shorter operation times, hospitalizations and recovery times for patients. But smaller incisions and complex reconstructions can pose a challenge for surgeons because of a limited view of the anatomy.

“The Mazor X™ system helps us with these issues as it gives us a comprehensive 3D surgical plan and analytics that provide important information before surgery,” said Dr. Christopher Bergin, an orthopedic surgeon at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. “It also gives us confidence when targeting and placing medical implants that require a high degree of accuracy, to ensure we avoid injury to nerves and other major arteries. This improved patient safety allows for higher quality outcomes.”

The Mazor X™ system will assist spine surgeons in the treatment of many spine conditions including curvature of the spine (scoliosis), herniated discs, vertebral fractures, traumatic spine injury, degenerative disc disease, spinal weakness or instability, spinal tumors, slipped disc (spondylolisthesis) and narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis).
