Mazor Robotics, based in Caesarea, Israel have earned themselves a reputation as being among the leading innovators in cutting-edge guidance systems and complementary products in the spine surgery market. Mazor’s products are acknowledged worldwide for their ability to enhance surgery in a secure environment not only for patients but also for surgeons and operating room staff.
Computer assisted surgery has gradually become accepted as standard practice in a wide range of brain procedures, with the frame less navigation devices used in the procedures having grown to dominate the sector for close to twenty years.
With the introduction of robotic-based systems from Mazor, surgeons now find that they are capable of carrying out these procedures with much greater accuracy while increasing levels of safety and ease of use. Due to these attributes, the neurological profession us increasingly interested in using robotic surgery methods in a number of procedures ranging from biopsy’s to the implantation of deep brain stimulating electrodes.
Thanks to the increased intensity of their use, neurosurgeons throughout the world are beginning to learn the techniques involved in brain surgery using robotics as a major part of their professional training.
As well as specialized robot operated equipment for use during the most delicate of brain surgery procedures, Mazor Robotics has also pioneered the use of robotics in spine surgery procedures, developing cutting-edge guidance systems as well as ancillary products specifically for use in spine surgery.
Under the title of the Mazor Robotics Renaissance Guidance System, this specialist equipment has been proven to enable surgeons to conduct spine surgeries in a more accurate and secure manner thanks to the use of medical quality 3D imaging techniques.
This cutting edge procedure, known in the medical profession as image-guided surgery or computer assisted surgery has succeeded in transforming spinal surgery from a once highly intensive freehand procedure to a computer and robot guided procedure which is so highly accurate that it has succeeded in dramatically raising the standard of surgical care with dramatically improved clinical results.
To date, Mazor’s Renaissance system has been used thousands of surgical spinal procedures throughout the world, with tens of thousands of implants being carried out in the process.
Thanks to Mazor Robotic, a vast number of these procedures would not have been able to be carried out, whilst many more may not have ended with such positive results without their technology being used.
Mazor Robotics, who employ around 100 people, not only in Israel but also in their wholly-owned subsidiaries in the USA and Germany have made themselves a positive niche in the surgical robotics sector.
Despite having a market cap of just $230 million, sales have grown from just over half a million dollars in 2008 to around twelve million in 2012. A dramatic rise in demand that only goes to prove that surgical robotics is a new and exciting technology that appears likely to change the way that the medical profession will operate in the 21st century.
