CAESAREA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE:MZOR; NASDAQGM:MZOR), a developer of innovative guidance systems and complementary products, today announced that Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a leading academic center in New Jersey, purchased its first Renaissance system. The system, which also includes the brain module, will be installed in New Brunswick, NJ, at the principal hospital of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center. Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, in partnership with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, is a nationally distinguished academic medical center.
“This purchase order from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital reflects the continuing success of Mazor’s overall market penetration strategy – deployment of the Renaissance in academic institutions and expanding presence in major metropolitan areas,” commented Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer. “This represents the third system in the New York City metropolitan area. Each is a leading academic center, so we are addressing one of the largest markets for spine procedures as well as training the next generation of orthopedic surgeons.”
“The Renaissance system purchased by RWJ also included the brain module, which is primarily used to assist with Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) procedures to treat movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. We now have six systems in the U.S. utilizing the brain module enabling surgeons and the hospital C-suite to leverage a single system for spine and brain procedures,” concluded Mr. Hadomi.
This represents the third purchase order for the Renaissance system to date in the first quarter ending March 31, 2016. The Company will announce the total number of system orders for the first quarter during the first week of April 2016.
