’s NeuroMate stereotactic system has performed its first neurosurgical procedure at a hospital in Lima, Peru.
The stereotactic neurosurgical procedure was recently completed at the Neurosurgery Department of Hospital Nacional Guillermo Almenara following installation of the NeuroMate system, the first of its kind in South America.
The system uses cutting-edge robotic technology and allows neurosurgeons to implant field proven neuro-implantable devices with extreme accuracy.
Chief of the Neurovascular and Tumour Surgical Department, Dr. Luis Bromley explained that the NeuroMate will enable the medical facility “to enhance the safety and cost-effectiveness of these interventions, while improving patient outcomes through the accuracy and reliability of the system.”
The surgeon who carried out the first NeuroMate procedure at the hospital, Dr. Camilo Contreras Campana, explained that he was able to experience firsthand the benefits of robotic assistance in the operating room.
Renishaw were able to provide training and support while working closely with the hospital staff at the Peruvian hospital to ensure the seamless integration of the NeuroMate said Dr. Abed Hammoud, CEO of Renishaw Mayfield SA.
The system’s installation confirms the trust of functional neurosurgeons in the proven performance of the NeuroMate robot.
