New Delhi: Nova Medical Center, a leading short-stay surgical chain in India, placed an order for a Mazor Robotics' Renaissance surgical robot system through Advanced Medical Systems, which is Mazor's distribution partner in India.
The system will be used at the Nova Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital, a newly-opened state of the art hospital in New Delhi, India, dedicated to orthopaedic and spinal surgeries. This system marks the second Renaissance system in India.
In 2009, Nova pioneered the concept of multispecialty Short-Stay Surgery Centers in India to address the need for world class healthcare that is affordable and accessible. Nova is now at the forefront of providing best in class surgical care, with 12 multispecialty short-stay surgical centers across India.
"This system sale represents Mazor's second installment in India, but given the high efficacy of Mazor's Renaissance system and a desire by hospitals to provide its patients with the best procedural outcomes, I believe we are just at the beginning of what could be a much larger installed base," commented Dr Romesh Kaul, president and chief executive officer, AMS.
Dr Harsha Hedge, medical director, orthopaedics, Nova, and one of India's most-renowned and experienced orthopedic surgeons, will be using the robotic system. With his vast training and experience in addition to his stellar reputation, there is no better ambassador for letting the whole of India know about the benefits of using Mazor's Renaissance system.Dr Hegde has a rich experience of more than 20 years in the field of joint replacements, arthroplasty and spinal surgeries.
