Mazor Robotics (TASE: MZOR; NASDAQ GM: MZOR) will debut and officially launch the new Renaissance Guidance System brain module at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) annual meeting. The Renaissance system is FDA-cleared for both spine and brain surgery.

The Renaissance brain module utilizes a small, frameless platform with only three points of fixation to provide highly accurate access to the areas of the brain where intervention is needed. This helps to minimize incisions and scarring while providing surgeons with a full 360 degree working volume to change trajectories with ease.

Dr. Bradley Wallace of Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Fla. performed the first bilateral procedure with Renaissance in December of last year. “With the Renaissance system, we’ve preplanned those trajectories and it’s simply a matter of pushing a button and redirecting the guidance unit to the new trajectories, ” said Dr. Wallace. “There is also a patient comfort component: the patient is awake for a portion of the surgery, so not being fixed to the bed and being able to move a little bit is an advantage.”

“We are very happy to see the benefits that Renaissance Brain Surgery is bringing to neurosurgeons and their patients, ” said Mazor Robotics CEO Ori Hadomi. “After years of development, we are excited to introduce our technology to the brain surgery market and continue our efforts in this new arena.”

To date, Mazor Robotics Renaissance Guidance System has been used to place over 45, 000 implants in thousands of spine procedures worldwide.
