The future
of spinal care





Go beyond individual pedicle trajectory guidance

to complete spine construct design.




  • Predictability
  • Precision
  • Visibility



  • Attract top surgeons
  • Serve in-the-know patients
  • Enhance hospital marketability
    and value proposition


  • Enables minimally invasive surgery for smaller incisions and typically shorter hospital stays.1,2,3 


Predictability of Planning


The Mazor™ robotic guidance system allows for pre-operative or intra-operative planning. With features such as customizable implant selection, optimal implant trajectories and 3D analytics, planning allows you to work towards construct optimization and make the procedure predictable.

Planning features include:


  • Segmental vertebral body registration
  • Align for sagittal and coronal deformities
  • Rod passage and skin cut optimization
  • Planning capabilities on a laptop or Mazor™ workstation

Precision of Robotic Guidance

State of the art registration and mechanical stability are critical to establish robotic precision. The Mazor™ platform secures a closed-loop connection between the bed-mounted robotic arm, the patient secured on the bed, and a rigid fixation between the robot and patient’s skeletal anatomy. The robot is table mounted for a small OR footprint. 

Robotic guidance features include:


  • Mulitple robotic patient monitoring options
  • 3Define cameras map the surgical site and create a "no fly zone" for
    optimal robotic movement
  • CT to Fluoro segmental merge registration pre-op or O-ArmTM scan
    and plan registration intra-op

Visibility of Navigation


Based on decades of experience, Stealth™ Navigation technology allows for real-time visualization of the implant entering the anatomy relative to the pre-operative plan. Execute the procedure intra-operatively by combining two guidance technologies in a comprehensive platform that helps you achieve your surgical goals with confidence. Navigation provides the visibility that closes the loop on the execution of the plan. 

Navigation features include:
  • Navigation is registered easily by taking a single non-radiographic snapshot image
  • Navigate Medtronic spinal fixation system instruments and implants through the
    robotic arm
