Parker, CO November 30, 2012 Parker Adventist Hospital, part of Centura Health, Colorados largest health care network, is the first hospital in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region to perform spine surgery with the new Mazor Robotics Renaissance system. Renaissance is the only robotic technology currently in the market that is specific to the spine.

The Renaissance system uses robotic technology to enhance a surgeons precision and capabilities during a case. This technology transitions free-hand operations to highly-accurate, state-of-the-art procedures, with less radiation even for minimally invasive surgery, scoliosis, spinal fusion, biopsies and other complex spinal deformity cases.

The Renaissance system is taking spine surgery to the next level, offering robotic-assistance with optimal surgical precision that has never been available., says Scott Stanley, MD, medical director of the spine program at Parker Adventist Hospital. With our skill and experience as surgeons, Renaissance will help us to continue to deliver the highest standard of care to our patients.

Independent clinical research has shown that spine surgery with Mazor Robotics technology may potentially result in increased accuracy with less radiation, shorter recovery and return to daily activities, lower complication rates and reduced pain.
