Mazor Robotics has announced that St Mary’s Healthcare, a general medical and surgical hospital in Amsterdam, New York, USA, has acquired its first Renaissance system. St Mary’s Hospital at Amsterdam is a member of Ascension Health. Ascension Health is a Catholic non-profit health system with more than 105,000 associates serving in 20 states and the District of Columbia, according to a press release.
“Mazor has clearly developed a technologically advanced system and we are delighted to be the first hospital in the Northeast to offer the Renaissance system,” commented Vic Giulianelli, president and CEO of St Mary’s. “Our patients already benefit from St Mary’s having one of the nation’s leading orthopaedic spine surgeon, and to achieve our goal of becoming a leading centre for advanced spine surgery regionally and throughout the Northeast, we also need to take advantage of the latest technological advances, which we have now done with the purchase of the Renaissance system.”
“St Mary’s Healthcare is a high quality institution—one that is committed to patient care and ensuring that its surgeons are continually using the latest technologies to deliver better patient outcomes,” commented Ori Hadomi, Mazor’s chief executive officer. “Our initial success in California, Florida and Texas provides us with a body of evidence supporting the benefits of our Renaissance system, so we are delighted to have installed our first Renaissance system in the Northeast. We will continue to deploy more resources to build upon this success as we see this being a promising market for Mazor.”
“As surgeons, we are inherently looking for better solutions for our patients, and I believe Renaissance will enable us to better serve those suffering from debilitating spinal conditions,” commented Jian Shen, orthopaedic spine surgeon at St Mary’s. “Renaissance system is the safest, most accurate technology for minimally-invasive spine surgery currently available in the marketplace, and given its accuracy and high safety level, I have complete confidence in its capabilities.”
