Florida Medical Center acquired the new Mazor X for Spine Program
Florida Medical Center Pioneers Use of Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform for Spine Surgery in Broward County
August 15, 2022 – Florida Medical Center is the first hospital in Broward County and one of the first in the region to add the Mazor X Stealth™ Robotic Guidance Platform to its premier regional spinal surgery center.
The Mazor X Stealth™ Robotic Guidance Platform combines pre-operative planning tools and analytics with intra-operative guidance, giving Florida Medical Center surgeons advanced spinal surgery options.
“This is a very exciting time for Florida Medical Center, our surgeons and our patients because this state-of-the-art technology is the final piece of our comprehensive spinal program,” said Michael Bell, president of Florida Medical Center. “Our surgeons can take care of our community with some of the most advanced technology and precision while getting the outcomes that patients want for their spine health. This will make a big difference in people’s lives.”
Hospitals choose the Mazor X to provide surgeons with pre-operative implant 3D planning and intra-operative trajectory precision when treating that patient. As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed minimally invasive techniques, and this is where the Mazor X can deliver its greatest technological benefits.
Minimally-invasive procedures with smaller incisions can sometimes pose a challenge to surgeons due to the limited view of the patient’s anatomy. The Mazor X helps to overcome this challenge with a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics that gives the surgeon comprehensive information and visualization before the surgery starts. Combining technological advances such as the Mazor X with patient focused pre and post-operative care is how Florida Medical Center is building a better more comprehensive spine program for Broward County.
Florida Medical Center has established its reputation as a leader in spine surgery with its advanced technologies and excellence in patient care. The Mazor X StealthTM Edition Robotic Guidance Platform helps us to continue our leadership in spine surgery excellence.
