Medtech has sold its first Rosa Spine robotic surgery system in the USA to Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton, USA.
Miami Valley Hospital is a 970-bed medical facility. It is a recipient of the Healthgrades “America’s 100 Best Hospitals’ Award in 2016 and has received the Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award – Clinical Excellence for three consecutive years from 2014 to 2016, according to a Medtech press release.
“Our hospital previously purchased two Rosa Brain systems in 2015 for our Neuroscience Institute and for training in our Brethen Center for Surgical Advancement in Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery,” says Mark Shaker, president and chief executive officer of Miami Valley Hospital. “We are thrilled to be the first facility in the USA to now have Rosa Spine, and we are confident that Medtech’s robotic technology will expand our minimally invasive spinal surgery options for the region.”
Rosa Spine was granted US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in January 2016, and received the CE mark in 2014. Medtech’s Rosa Brain received FDA approval in 2012 and is currently in use in 29 US facilities.
