ORLANDO, FLA., Sept. 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System will be featured in a Live Surgery presentation entitled, "Spine: Robotics-guided MIS TLIF" at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The surgery will be performed live by Hunaldo J. Villalobos, MD, FACS, in Orlando, Florida, and broadcast into the exhibit area from 11:45 am – 12:15 pm on Tuesday, September 29.
The Renaissance system uses advanced 3D planning and mechanical guidance with 1.5mm accuracy to provide surgeons with a better solution for minimally invasive and percutaneous fusions, complex spinal deformity, trauma cases, and cranial procedures.
