 Medtronic Canada ULC, a subsidiary of Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) a global leader in healthcare technology, today announced the commercial launch of the Mazor™ X System (herein referred to as Mazor) for robotic-guided spine surgery. The Mazor platform 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 Mazor 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 integration of navigation and robotic technologies into one platform is an exciting advancement in the field of spinal surgery," says Dr. Scott Paquette , orthopedic spine surgeon, and president of the Canadian Spine Society. "Mazor represents an incredible future of possibilities in spinal robotics, which I believe will greatly contribute to reduced risk for patients."

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.

The best-in-class 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.

"Mazor embodies a synergy between robotics and navigation, providing a rigorous degree of accuracy integrated throughout the surgical procedure, with the hope of producing more reliable outcomes," 1 says Peter Tomashewski , senior director, Neuro and Spine Surgery, within the Cranial & Spinal Technologies business at Medtronic Canada. "The addition of Mazor to our portfolio provides another transformative tool that elevates our value driven solutions for spinal care."
