Medtronic launched the Mazor X Stealth Edition™ Robotic-Assisted Spine Surgery System in India through India Medtronic Private Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary.
The system is designed to be a fully-integrated procedural solution for surgical planning, workflow, execution, and confirmation of spine surgeries.
"We are bringing myriad new technologies to India to improve access to the best treatment options for patients,” said Madan Krishnan, Vice President and Managing Director, India Medtronic Pvt Ltd. “This year being the 40th year for Medtronic in India, we are happy to demonstrate our commitment to transforming healthcare in India with renewed vigor by launching the Mazor X Stealth Edition Robotic-assisted Spine Surgery System."
Co-developed by Medtronic and Mazor Robotics, Mazor X Stealth incorporates Stealth™ software technology into the Mazor X robotic-assisted surgery platform. Software is used to plan the procedure, then uses a robotic arm to guide implants and instruments through the process while simultaneously using real-time imaging feedback to ensure that the plan is being carried out as indicated. The surgeon can plan and visualize the surgery beforehand to study multiple levels and the entire process. Robotic guidance is an extension of the doctor during the process, to enable execution with precision; the surgeon can visualize progress in real-time.
