(RoboticsBusinessReview) Medtronic has made a multifaceted deal with surgical robotics provider Mazor Robotics Ltd. There are more than 500,000 spinal implant surgeries per year in the US alone. In May, Medtronic said it would buy 15 Mazor X systems by year’s end. Assuming that joint development and sales are successful, the company plans to become the exclusive distributor of Mazor Robotics’s products in 2017.
Medtronics is the world’s largest pure-play medical device maker.
