Mazor, Medtronic continue to push commercialization

March 24, 2017

Caesarea, Israel-based Mazor Robotics has teamed up with Dublin, Ireland-based Medtronic to co-market and promote the Mazor X, according to Yahoo! Finance.

Mazor X expands on the company’s robotic guidance technology to include analytical tools, multiple-source data, precision guidance, optical tracking, intra-op verification and connectivity technologies.


Here are five things to know:


1. Orlando, Fla.-based Mazor Robotics, Mazor’s U.S. subsidiary, is committed to training surgeons in Mazor X skills.


2. Celebration-based The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center serves as a training center for Mazor X, training more than 100 surgeons from across the country in 2016.


3. Mazor entered into a strategic partnership with Medtronic in May 2016, with a combined focus on Mazor X commercialization.


4. As part of its $20 million investment in Mazor Robotics, Medtronic placed a purchase order for 15 Mazor X systems in August 2016.


5. Mazor launched the Mazor X at the North American Spine Society annual meeting in Boston, held from Oct. 26 to 29, 2016.


“As a pioneer and a leader in the field of surgical guidance systems, Mazor Robotics saw two significant milestones in 2016: the launch of our strategic partnership with Medtronic followed by the commercial release of the new Mazor X. We are very excited to see what 2017 brings for our company,” said Mazor Robotics CEO Christopher Prentice.
