South Florida hospital becomes first to use Rosa system for deep brain stimulation


Hollywood, Fla.-based Memorial Neuroscience Institute became the first hospital in South Florida to use the Zimmer Biomet Rosa system to perform deep brain stimulation.

By using the Rosa system, doctors and neurosurgeons were able to perform deep brain stimulation, a method to treat Parkinson's disease, in half the time of the traditional surgery, according to a Feb. 20 news release. 

The system is able to precisely target and accurately verify the position of electrodes and only requires patients to spend one night in the hospital, the release said. The procedure is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, unlike traditional DBS surgery, which requires the patient to remain awake.
