Mazor Robotics- a driving force behind the medical revolution of the 21st century

The use of robot assisted surgery has become increasingly more common in surgical procedures with Mazor being one of the key global players in the development and production of innovative robot devices.

Mazor-Robotics

 

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.
