mazor renaissance surgery for fusion

Has anyone heard of this technology or have had it done with there fusion surgery? I am asking because this is one of the options that was thrown out to me for surgery. From what I have read and heard is that it is supposed to be more accurate.

thanks, martinbr

  • Use of the Mazor depends on the experience of the surgeon. If the surgeon can do the alignment function rapidly and correctly, the robot can help with accuracy of placing the pedicle screws and possibly shorten the time needed for the surgery. My partner had 4 level posterior fusion L2-S1, and they used the Mazor. If the surgeon is new to the mazor, I'd pass.
