Dr. Sharan said, “The newly acquired neuromate system will provide me and my team with a platform for a broad range of stereotactic neurosurgical procedures. We are pleased to have a neuromate at our center, as we believe that this is only the beginning of an exciting future for robotics in the neurosurgery operating room.”
Dr. Abed Hammoud, CEO of Renishaw Mayfield SA said, “This installation confirms the trust of a leading US neurosurgical center in the neuromate system and in Renishaw. Our clinical and technical support teams will work closely with the neurosurgery team at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, to ensure the seamless integration of the neuromate into their surgical workflow, thus aiding them to provide optimal outcomes for their patients.”
