Related Special Reports

Tri-City Medical Center has purchased its second spine robot from Mazor Robotics Ltd., a developer of innovative surgical robots and complementary products.

The hospital purchased its first Renaissance surgical system in February 2012. Superior surgical outcomes, and physician and patient demand for the technology prompted the need for a second system, said CEO Larry B. Anderson.

"Tri-City Medical Center remains on the cutting edge in embracing technology that advances the quality of care we provide to patients with back pain," said Anderson, who championed the creation of the robotic spine program in March of 2012. "We continue to be the destination for spine care in Southern California and the Southwestern Region and we are excited to partner with Mazor in this endeavor."

The systems will be used among four surgeons within Tri-City's Orthopaedic and Spine Institute.

"This second installation marks the first time a U.S. hospital has purchased a second Renaissance system, and it is a direct result of surgeon demand," stated Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor. "We are so pleased that our technology has delivered exceptional value to the surgeons and patients at Tri-City Medical Center. With surgeons insisting on using the system for their procedures, we are confident that the technology has established itself as an essential instrument for spine surgeries."

"The Mazor Renaissance system is remarkable technology that allows surgeons such as myself to elevate the level of care given to our patients suffering from back pain," said Dr. Neville Alleyne, president of Tri-City's Orthopaedic and Spine Institute. "The Mazor spine robot offers a precision that is unparalleled, which results in outstanding clinical outcomes, resulting in shorter stays and faster healing."
