Hackensack University Medical Center is the first hospital in New Jersey to offer Mazor Robotics Renaissance Spine Surgery, which uses a state-ofthe-art guidance system. Mazor Robotics technology was clinically validated to ensure 1.5 millimeters accuracy for increased patient safety as compared to freehand spine surgery. Before entering the operating room, surgeons use Renaissance to pre-plan the optimal surgery in a CT-based 3D simulation of the patient’s spine. During surgery, Renaissance guides the surgeon’s hand and tools to the precise pre-planned location. In a recent multicenter study published in Spine Journal, investigators stated that Mazor Robotics technology “offers enhanced performance in spinal surgery when compared to freehand surgeries, by increasing placement accuracy and reducing neurologic risks.” Dr. Patrick A. Roth, chairman of neurosurgery at HackensackUMC adds, “Spinal surgery should always be viewed as a last option, as there are always risks and complications involved in any type
