Renaissance, Mazor Robotics’ guidance system, enables surgeons to perform safer and more accurate spine surgeries. For you, this typically means better results with less pain and fewer complications, enabling a faster recovery and return to daily activities.

State-of the-art treatment for spine conditions

Renaissance is used to treat patients suffering from debilitating back pain or limited range of motion caused by spinal deformities and degenerative conditions such as slipped vertebrae, scoliosis and spinal nerve impingement (pinched nerves). To treat these conditions, surgeons use Renaissance in procedures such as placing spinal implants in spinal fusion, injecting bone cement in vertebroplasties, and performing biopsies.

Renaissance minimally invasive surgery (MIS)

Unlike conventional open surgery, surgeons performing this minimally invasive surgery (MIS) make small incisions that typically result in less pain, fewer scars, fewer complications and faster recovery. Small incisions also mean surgeons have a more limited field-of-view that can impact accuracy and safety. Usually more intraoperative X-ray images are required during MIS procedures to compensate for this limited field-of-view. So, patients can enjoy the clinical benefits of MIS without the need for additional radiation or compromising on accuracy.

How it works

Surgeons use the Renaissance advanced 3D planning software to create a unique surgical blueprint for each patient’s condition to place the implants safely and with the highest level of accuracy. And since there is no need for additional X-rays during surgery, with Renaissance there is less exposure to radiation than with other surgical treatments.
