Mazor Robotics Ltd., the developer of Renaissance™, an innovative surgical guidance system and its complementary products, announced today orders of two Renaissance systems in late December, ending the 2013 fourth quarter with a total of seven system sales.
In the U.S., the system was ordered by Littleton Adventist Hospital (Littleton, CO) and the second system was ordered internationally by Bestech, the Company’s distributor in Israel, for installation in a hospital in Haifa, Israel.
Littleton Adventist Hospital purchased its first Renaissance system becoming the fifth Adventist Health System hospital and the second hospital within the Centura Health system to purchase a Renaissance system. Littleton Adventist Hospital is a full-service medical center that has provided compassionate health care and quality treatment for more than 20 years. The hospital’s medical teams specialize in cardiology, orthopedics, neurology, cancer care and women’s and children’s services.
