For the 1st time Mazor Robotics' (PINK:MZRTF) Renaissance robot-assisted surgical system system was used to to treat a Parkinson's patient, implanting a battery-sized neurostimulator that delivers mild electrical stimulation to targeted areas of the brain.

The landmark procedure took place at a Florida hospital earlier this month. Caesarea, Israel-based Mazor said 2 more patients have since been treated with positive results.
