ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mazor Robotics Inc., a developer of innovative guidance systems and complementary products, and The Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders (CMD), today announced the first installation of the Renaissance system in an ambulatory outpatient setting in the Northeast.
CMD, located in Englewood, NJ, is a joint private practice including The Center for Spinal Disorders, The Center for Hand Disorders and The Center for Pain Management. CMD's spine surgeons, Drs. Jonathan Lewin, Seth Grossman and Vagmin Vora, assisted by Isaac Abramchayev, PA, will be using Renaissance. Drs. Steven Horowitz and Jonathan Simhaee, who head the pain management division, also support the new technology, along with the orthopedic head of the practice, Dr. Raz Winiarsky.
"With Mazor's Renaissance system, we now have a unique opportunity to provide spine surgery patients access to the latest technology in an outpatient setting," said Spine Surgeon Dr. Jonathan Lewin. "The system is a great addition to our comprehensive care practice."
"The technology is innovative and forward thinking. The pre-operative platform helps put the surgeon at ease about placement of metal hardware around very vital structures," said the practice's PA, Isaac Abramchayev. "The intra-operative hardware is precise and easy to apply into the normal routine. For too long, spinal surgery has relied on estimation and guessing. This technology is set to theoretically and practically change the way spinal surgery is approached from a surgical and perioperative team standpoint."
The Renaissance system uses advanced 3D planning and mechanical guidance with 1.5mm accuracy to provide surgeons with a powerful solution for minimally invasive and percutaneous fusions, complex spinal deformity and trauma cases. Access Mazor Robotics series of 'How Renaissance Works' videos here.
