Thanks to Mazor Robotics, the Renaissance® system is a unique system for device implantation in robotic spine surgery. In traditional surgery, fluoroscopic equipment is typically needed to give the surgeon a visual on location and to ensure the procedure is going correctly and according to plan. This process involves small exposures to radiation during this device’s use. In robotic-assisted surgery, fluoroscopy use is decreased as a result of planning stages that occur long before the patient has entered the operating room. Images taken with computerized tomography (CT) serve as a blueprint for this pre-operative planning. These images are loaded into a computerized 3D system for a 360 degree view of the target area.
