LONE TREE, Colo., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sky Ridge Medical Center acquired the first Mazor X™ system in Colorado and a ten-state region for spine surgery. The Sky Ridge Spine and Total Joint Center, a recipient of the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval, strives to improve patient outcomes with advanced technology and surgical techniques.
As part of its commitment to providing exceptional clinical care, Sky Ridge surgeons are now performing spine surgeries with the Mazor X™ system, which increases the efficiency and safety of spine surgery.

It is introducing technologies that link the knowledge and proficiency of our surgeons with digital data and analysis, enabling us to transform spine surgery, increasing its predictability for patients, surgeons and hospital teams," said Susan Hicks, CEO, Sky Ridge Medical Center.
