Robotic Guidance System for Spinal Surgery
Robotic Guidance System for Spinal Surgery
The Mazor X™ robotic guidance system combines advanced software, robotic technology, and instrumentation to help you to deliver high-quality care and supports your commitment to more predictable surgical procedures.
The Mazor X system makes it possible for you to step into your OR with a detail-rich, complete surgical plan that you can execute using trajectory guidance. The system goes beyond individual pedicles, to enable the benefits of entire construct design and execution. With the potential to improve patient care and outcomes, the system can help you drive workflow efficiency.
A third-generation surgical robotic guidance system, Mazor X builds on years of experience. In its first year, it was used in more than 1,000 procedures in more than 50 hospitals in the United States.*
We believe technology has the power to improve lives. That's why we are continually innovating to bring you the latest in spine surgical imaging, navigation, robotic technology, as well as implant therapies.
The Mazor X robotic guidance system is indicated for precise positioning of surgical instruments or spinal implants during general spine surgery. It may be used in either open or minimally invasive or percutaneous procedures.
Proactively plan while achieving stability and accuracy
The Mazor X robotic guidance system allows for pre-operative or intra-operative planning and robotic-guided execution of multiple trajectories. Directly connected to your patient's bony anatomy when in use, the system is specifically designed to provide a stable and precise environment for performing spine surgery.
Watch the Mazor X system’s sophisticated planning tools, intra-operative guidance system and a precision surgical arm.
Accuracy in Surgical Planning
Sophisticated 3D analytics and virtual tools allow you to determine procedural goals and create a "surgical blueprint" prior to the case. On surgery day, the plan is executed through efficient movements, enabling a predictable procedure — complete with defined trajectories, preselected implants, and no anatomical surprises. This plan takes into account construct design and global alignment, going beyond single trajectory guidance.
Advanced Anatomy Recognition
Based on advanced algorithms, the Mazor X anatomy recognition software reads — and recognizes — anatomical features offering pre-operative insight to the challenges before you. The software is fundamental to planning and serves as the underlying technology supporting key features such as vertebral segmentation, image registration, and alignment calculations.
Secure Patient Connection Platform
Precise robotic-guided execution centers around a stable connection to the patient. Our biocompatible devices rigidly affix the robotic guidance system to the patient’s skeletal anatomy during surgery, ensuring precision through a secure, solid connection.
Cross-Modality Image Registration
With an innovative imaging cross-modality registration process, each vertebral body registers independently. The robotic guidance system analyzes and pairs images from different imaging modalities, such as matching a pre-operative CT with intra-operative fluoroscopy — or 3D surgical imaging, like O-arm System — including images captured at different times and on different anatomical planes.
Robotic Guided Spine Surgery
The Mazor X is a custom designed robotic arm solution with goals to advance precise arm solutions for each trajectory. This robotic-guided spine surgery is based on foundational software that allows you to plan intra-operatively or pre-operatively.
The Mazor X robotic guidance arm makes it possible to:
Analytical Software for 3D Imaging
The Mazor X software intelligence goes beyond single pedicle trajectory guidance. The system can offer construct optimization and spinal balance, allowing you to:
Streamlined OR Footprint
A unique, bed-mounted robotic guidance system lets you pull the workstation away from the operating table to minimize risk of crowding during the procedure. This:
Segmental Merge within Registration
Proprietary image processing capabilities on a CT or other surgical imaging device make it possible to identify and segment out individual vertebral bodies level by level, which provides 3D axial, coronal, and sagittal slice data to help you plan.
Rigid Patient Referencing
Secure rigid patient fixation with multiple attachment options helps facilitate rigid stability.
Patient Collision Avoidance
The Mazor X robotic guidance system understands its 3D environment and knows where it can and cannot move, creating efficient and faster movements during implantation.
