Foundation Surgical Hospital recently announced that it has chosen the Renaissance system of Mazor Robotics Ltd. Mazor Robotics has already installed the Renaissance system four times in the state of Texas. The organization has also installed the system 20 times across the country in the past year.
The 20 private suite facility, FSH of San Antonio, provides several surgical procedures and medical services. FSH of San Antonio is a member of Foundation Surgical Hospital Affiliates, or FSHA, a healthcare management and development organization. Surgical hospitals are developed and operated by FSHA in association with physicians. Four associate hospitals in Texas, counting FSA of San Antonio, are administered by FSHA.
In a statement, Michael Leonard, MD, executive director of the Alamo Neurosurgical Institute said, “I'm thrilled to be working with Mazor and honored to be the first surgeon to bring robotic spine surgery to San Antonio. As a neurosurgeon, I truly appreciate the benefits of an innovative technology that allows me to perform surgery with more precision, accuracy and less risk. This technology is the wave of the future, and I'm excited about being on the forefront of its introduction to the spine surgery community in San Antonio.”
Spine surgery has received a makeover with Renaissance, the ground-breaking surgical guidance system for spine procedures from Mazor Robotics. Spine surgery has now shifted from unguided operations to extremely precise, up to date procedures. Renaissance ensures a reduced amount of radiation, even for minimally invasive surgery, scoliosis, and other intricate spinal deformity cases. Currently, Renaissance is a unique robotic technology available in the marketplace for spine surgery.
Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor Robotics said, “We are excited to work with Foundation Surgical Hospital Affiliates, bringing our Renaissance system to another outstanding facility in Texas. FSH of San Antonio is well known for adopting the latest advancements in neurological and spinal surgery, and we are looking forward to working closely with Dr. Leonard in utilizing the Renaissance technology in his spinal surgical practice.”
Ground-breaking surgical robots and complementary products are developed and promoted by Mazor Robotics. The organization therefore ensures a more secure surgical environment for patients, surgeons, and operating room staff.
