Florida ASC first in the Southeast to purchase Mazor robot for spine surgery

Baptist Medical Park Surgery Center, an ASC located in Pensacola, Fla., is the first surgery center in the Southeast to purchase Mazor Robotics' Renaissance System.

Here are the key details to know:

1. The ASC recently completed its first sacroiliac joint fusion procedure with the robotic system.

2. Mark Giovanini, MD , a surgeon who is using the Mazor Robotics' Renaissance System for all SI fusions procedures, said the technology provides patients with the full advantages of spinal surgery with the convenience of an outpatient facility.

"This technology enhances my ability to complete complex procedures with the industry’s most minimally invasive techniques, which has always been the core value at NeuroMicroSpine,” Dr. Giovanini said.

3. “We acknowledge Baptist Health Care and Baptist Medical Park Surgery Center for their commitment to a robotic spine surgery program. Mazor believes that with Baptist Medical Park Surgery Center being one of the first outpatient facilities in the Southeast U.S. to offer outpatient Mazor Robotics procedures, more patients may benefit from Renaissance technology for spine procedures,” said Christopher Prentice, chief commercial officer of Mazor Robotics in a release.
