CAESAREA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mazor Robotics Ltd., the developer of Renaissance™, an innovative surgical guidance system and its complementary products, today announced that Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville in Florida acquired its first Renaissance system. Baptist Health neurosurgeon Andrew Cannestra, MD, will perform the first surgery with the new device.
Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville is a community hospital and the central hub of Baptist Health, a five-hospital, 1,100-bed health system in Northeast Florida. Baptist Health has been recognized for its use of the latest medical technologies.
“This technology makes Baptist Jacksonville a true robotic center, adding Renaissance to the da Vinci and MAKO systems our physicians are currently using for minimally invasive procedures,” said Michael Mayo, FACHE, Hospital President of Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville. “Renaissance allows us to expand our tertiary level capabilities to care for the most complex spinal surgery patients in the region, ultimately enhancing quality outcomes.”
“The arrival of the Renaissance system will allow new program development in spinal surgery in the Jacksonville area and further advance minimally-invasive spinal surgery in the Baptist Health system,” Dr. Cannestra said. “This robotic spinal surgery solution allows us to treat more complex spinal deformity patients, those who have severe scoliosis, with less radiation, less operative time and less blood loss.”
“We’re so pleased to introduce Renaissance to the neurosurgery and orthopaedic spine surgeons at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville. The hospital is known for coupling highly advanced diagnostic and treatment capabilities with personalized care, and I’m thrilled to offer our technology to the surgeons and patients of another outstanding facility in Florida,” stated Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer of Mazor.
