Mazor Spine Surgery 

What is the Mazor RenaissanceTM spine robot?

RenaissanceTM is Mazor Robotics’ guidance system that allows surgeons to perform any spine surgery, from the simplest to the most complex. It is designed to help reduce radiation, lower complication rates, reduce pain and enable faster recovery for patients.

How safe is the Mazor Robot?

RenaissanceTM has been used in thousands of surgeries worldwide.

What is the difference between traditional spine surgery and this minimally invasive procedure?

In open surgery, the spine is exposed through a large incision to allow a full view and access. Based on your CT-scan, your surgeon may be able to use the RenaissanceTM advanced 3D planning software to plan the optimal surgery customized for your anatomy and diagnosis. Once in the operating room, RenaissanceTM guides your surgeon to the preplanned anatomical location where intervention is necessary.

RenaissanceTM is not independent and does not cut or perform any action on your body. Only your surgeon performs the required procedures such as placing implants. Your surgeon is in full control of the system at all times. Also, at any stage, your surgeon can decide to continue without the assistance of the RenaissanceTM.

Types of spinal surgeries performed using the RenaissanceTM include:

  • Open, MIS, & percutaneous posterior thoracolumbar approaches
  • Scoliosis and other complex spinal deformities
  • Pedicle screws – short and long fusions
  • Transfacet screws and translaminar-facet screws
  • Osteotomies
  • Biopsies
