Florida Hospital Carrollwood in the US has installed the Renaissance system by Mazor Robotics for its spinal procedures.
The system will allow accurate robotic procedures with less radiation, even for minimally invasive surgery (MIS), the manufacturer said.
Florida Hospital Carrollwood CEO Brinsley Lewis said: "This newest addition to our overall imaging and surgical tools helps to ensure we are meeting our commitment. The most important factors in this are the safety of our patients and the most successful outcomes possible."
The system’s hardware and software tools enable a range of procedures on the spine, including percutaneous posterior thoracolumbar approaches, scoliosis, pedicle screws, osteotomies and biopsies.
Florida Hospital Carrollwood spine surgeon Antonio Castellvi added: "It will provide me with accuracy not available before, making my spine surgery even more precise and safer for my patients, with even better outcomes."
The surgical guidance system will create a preoperative blueprint of the model surgery for each patient in a virtual 3D environment.
Tools and implants are then guided to the planned location with 1mm accuracy.
