A New Test

Grand Strand Medical Center is now offering a minimally invasive spine surgery through the Mazor Robotics Renaissance® System. Patients who suffer from unbearable spinal conditions such as scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, kyphosis or spondylolisthesis, may be candidates for spine surgery.

With the Mazor Robotics Renaissance System, surgeons plan before entering the operating room and then implement – with 1.5mm accuracy – providing consistent results. Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision, and each patient’s anatomy has unique challenges. With Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System, spine surgery patients benefit from high levels of accuracy and the advantages of minimally-invasive surgery.

Minimally-invasive surgery with Mazor Robotics technology offers the following benefits to patients:

  • Increases accuracy
  • Lowers complication rates
  • Reduces postoperative pain
  • Enables faster recovery and return to daily activities

Frequently Asked Questions about the Renaissance® System

How Will My Surgeon Work With Renaissance®? Is It Independent?

Your surgeon will select the best treatment for your specific condition. Based on your CT-scan, your surgeon will use Renaissance’s advanced 3D planning software to plan the optimal surgery customized for your anatomy and diagnosis. Once in the operating room, Renaissance guides your surgeon precisely to the preplanned anatomical location where intervention is necessary. Renaissance is not independent and does not cut or perform any action on your body. Only your surgeon performs the required procedures such as placing implants. Your surgeon is in full control of the system at all times. Also, at any stage, your surgeon can decide to continue without the assistance of Renaissance.

How Safe Is Surgery With Renaissance® Technology?

Renaissance® Guidance System is powered by Mazor Robotics clinically proven technology – used in thousands of surgeries worldwide, including placement of tens of thousands of implants. Like all Mazor Robotics systems, it strictly adheres to international standards and has received FDA clearance in the USA and the European CE Mark.

What Are The Clinical Benefits of Mazor Robotics Technology?

Renaissance® Guidance System takes spine procedures to the next level with its consistent accuracy. Furthermore, Renaissance better enables minimallyinvasive surgery by replacing the surgeon’s need for a direct field-of-view with a surgical guidance system. Independent scientific research has shown that minimally-invasive surgery with Mazor Robotics technology increases surgical accuracy, lowers complication rates, reduces postoperative pain, and aides in faster recovery with a quicker return to daily activities when compared to open, freehand surgeries.
