Central Florida Neurosurgeon, Dr. Nizam Razack has partnered with innovators in the dynamic new field of robotic surgery. He was the first surgeon in Florida to perform surgery with the Renaissance by Mazor Robotics – a next generation robotic guidance system for spine procedures.
Mazor Robotics Ltd (TASE:MZOR), the leader in innovative surgical robots and complementary products for spine surgery, announced that Florida Hospital has purchased a RenaissanceTM system. Renaissance is Mazor Robotics’ next generation surgical guidance system for spine procedures. The system is installed at Celebration Health hospital, part of the Florida Hospital system.
