Leading Hospitals Using Mazor Robotics for Spine Surgery Featured on US National TV and Cable Networks
Broadcast to Millions of Viewers on PBS, Fox Business News, CNN, Business Day with Terry Bradshaw, and Ridley Scott's New Show on Science Channel
PBS's award-winning show, The American Health Journal, recently filmed a segment in Plano, Texas highlighting the clinical value and improved outcomes of patients being operated on using Mazor Robotics technology.
Business Day with Terry Bradshaw, which airs on the Fox Business Network, CNN Headline News, and Comcast Cable, covers topics from emerging technologies to health care developments and environmental solutions impacting the global economy. In the Business Day feature, Mr Bradshaw interviewed surgeons from leading hospitals in Irvine, California and Plano, Texas about the impact and advantages of robotic spine surgery.
"It was their commitment to clinical excellence that prompted the surgeons to adapt a robotic guidance system to their surgeries, especially in complex and minimally invasive surgeries," noted Bradshaw, in his introduction of spine surgeons Nitin N. Bhatia, MD, and Sam Bederman, MD, from Irvine, California. Both surgeons emphasized Mazor Robotics' superior accuracy for a variety of spine procedures. Mr Bradshaw, citing a 14-center peer-review article published in Spine, noted that, "a recent study of over 600 patients revealed that the technology provides an accuracy rate of over 98%. Without it, the average accuracy rate is 90%."
Mr Bradshaw also quoted orthopedic surgeon Isador H. Lieberman, MD, from Plano, Texas who highlighted the value of Mazor Robotics, "it's all about providing the highest quality of care to optimizing patient outcomes and dramatically cutting costs."

Later this fall, UC Irvine's implementation of Mazor Robotics technology will be spotlighted in a new series produced by acclaimed director Ridley Scott for the Science Channel.
"What is significant about this wave of TV coverage in the US," commented Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor Robotics, " is that in the past Mazor Robotics technology was reported, for example on CNN, as a novel invention. Today, we are seeing the results of our innovations as clinically proven technology that raises the level of patient care--and that leading medical centers choose to communicate this value to demonstrate their commitment to clinical excellence."
