More than 200 Successful Scoliosis Cases Performed in Leading US
Medical Centers


CAESAREA, ISRAEL

OCTOBER 31ST, 2011
-
Mazor Robotics Ltd (TASE: MZOR), the
pioneer in innovat
ive surgical robots and complementary products for spine surgery,
announced that its clinically proven technology has been used to guide placement
of more than 15,000 spinal implants, from routine to the most complex cases.
Furthermore, there have been no
reported cases of permanent nerve damage, in
thousands of Mazor Robotics surgeries worldwide. This contrasts sharply to the current
standard of care.


Mazor Robotics has developed the world's only robotic systems that provide surgical
guidance for spine su
rgeries. According to published clinical data, Mazor Robotics


technology has been scientifically proven to increase the accuracy of spinal implants
and significantly lower rates of misplaced screws and neurological deficits. For
patients, this means fewer
complications and revisions. More importantly, higher
accuracy rates means that more people are able to live with less pain and
debilitation, a reality made possible through the combination of Mazor Robotics


unique technology and the skill of the surgeon
s who use the system.


Following the success of its initial SpineAssist
®
, Mazor Robotics recently introduced
Renaissance

, its next generation system, which is both FDA cleared and CE
marked. Renaissance

is transforming spine surgeries from free
-
hand proc
edures to
highly accurate, state
-
of
-
the
-
art procedures, with less radiation

even for minimally
invasive surgery, scoliosis, and other complex spinal deformity cases.


Spine surgeon Nitin N. Bhatia, MD, Irvine, California, summarized the clinical
advantages
, remarking that Mazor Robotics technology

saves on time, saves on
radiation and the accuracy has been phenomenal.



Dennis P. Devito, MD, a scoliosis specialist from Atlanta, Georgia, recently reported
clinical accuracy of 99.7% for 1,815 implants placed
with Mazor Robotics

system in
120 scoliotic adolescents. According to current scientific literature, the average
accuracy is approximately 85
-
90% for free
-
hand surgical techniques. Devito said,

I
find it provides better patient care through enhancement
of the surgeon

s
capabilities and it also makes my surgical work easier.



Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor Robotics, said,

This clinical
-
success milestone is rewarding
for our team and the leading spine surgeons with whom we partner. It is so fulfilling to
see our robotic technology integrated in surgical practice in medical centers
worldwide. The most gratifying part of all i
s the enthusiasm from surgeons using Mazor
Robotics systems, reflecting their patients

satisfaction with the outcome of their spine
surgeries. We look forward to more in
-
depth collaboration with surgeons using our
systems.
