Renishaw is pleased to announce that a neuromate stereotactic robotic system has been installed at the Oliver & Ayats Institute at the renowned Centro Médico Teknon, in Barcelona. This is the first neuromate installation in Spain.
After performing the first surgery with the neuromate robot, a Stereo-EEG implantation case for epilepsy, Dr. Bartolomé Oliver (Head Neurosurgeon) said, “We are very pleased to have a neuromate at our center, as we believe that the future in epilepsy surgery is in robotics. It will help us to advance our surgical workflow to the next level and beyond.”

Dr. Abed Hammoud, CEO of Renishaw Mayfield added, “Our clinical and technical support teams will closely collaborate with the neurosurgery team at Teknon, to ensure the optimal integration of the neuromate into their surgical procedures, and therefore supporting them to provide best possible outcomes for their patients.”
