2. Medtronic: Mazor X Stealth
Medtronic officials think robot-assisted surgery could prove a game-changer in the spine surgery space. The company in late 2018 closed on its $1.7 billion purchase of Mazor Robotics and its robot-assisted spine surgery platform. A month later, Medtronic launched its Mazor X Stealth robotic-assisted spinal surgical platform in the U.S. The Mazor X Stealth combines robotic guidance system technology from the Mazor acquisition with Medtronic’s StealthStation surgical navigation technology.

Medtronic officials have said that they are looking to add further enhancements to the Mazor X system.
