Florida Hospital acquires robotic Renaissance system


Mazor Robotics announced that Florida Hospital has purchased a Renaissance system. Renaissance is Mazor Robotics’ next generation surgical guidance system for spine procedures. The system will be installed at Celebration Health hospital, part of the Florida Hospital system. 

Nizam Razack will be the first surgeon in Florida to perform cases with the Renaissance. His first cases are scheduled for mid-March.

Florida Hospital, comprised of 7 hospitals across Central Florida, treats more patients than any other hospital in the USA and is a member of Adventist Health System. Adventist Health System operates 43 hospitals in ten states making it the largest not-for-profit Protestant health care system in the United States. Home to Florida Hospital’s Global Robotics Institute and Nicholson Center, Celebration Health is an international destination for patients seeking advanced medical treatment as well as for physicians who wish to be trained on state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques. Celebration Health played a leadership role in the broad adoption of surgical robotics in urology and gynecology.

“By partnering closely with innovators in robotic surgery, Celebration Health built the leading center for robot-assisted surgery and recruited the world’s best urologists and gynecologists,” said Monica Reed, Celebration Health CEO. “We are excited to partner with Mazor and bring the same competitive edge to our spine centre.”

“Mazor aims to work closely with early adopters of Renaissance within large hospital networks to broaden the system’s potential exposure to a large number of surgeons,” said Ori Hadomi, CEO, Mazor Robotics. “With a state-of-the-art training facility, its large affiliate hospital network and global reputation, we are confident that Celebration Health will be a strong partner for training surgeons to perform robotic spine procedures and an excellent reference point for other hospitals considering the distinguishing features of surgical robotics.”
