Robot-assisted surgery: Mazor touts landmark Parkinson's patient treated
Mazor Robotics' Renaissance robot-assisted surgical system treats its 1st Parkinson's patient with a deep-brain stimulation implant.
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.
