Medtronic Launches Mazor X in Canada

Medtronic Canada, a subsidiary of Medtronic, commenced commercial launch of the Mazor™ X System for robotic-guided spine surgery. Mazor offers a fully integrated procedural solution for surgical planning, workflow, execution and confirmation, and is the first dedicated robotic assisted spine surgery platform being launched in Canada.

The platform seamlessly incorporates existing StealthStation™ S8 surgical navigation capabilities into the Mazor Core Technology robotic-assisted surgery platform. Real-time image guidance, visualization and navigation are informed by interactive 3D planning and information systems to deliver workflow predictability and flexibility for procedures.

The three-dimensional Mazor platform allows surgeons to quickly visualize anatomy and spinal structures in relation to one another. This provides surgeons with access to plan and simulate spinal cages and screws in advance, with the goal of increasing efficiencies and surgical precision.

Midas Rex™ MR8 Electric High Speed Drill Systems are fully integrated throughout the Mazor system, enabling improved trajectory precision starting with pilot hole creation and offering attachments and dissecting tools designed to drill with accuracy at speeds up to 75,000 rpm. Surgeons can now use navigated interbody features on the Mazor system to visualize disc prep and interbody placement during a robotic procedure.
