Robotics in healthcare

Combining the latest technology with world-class training, RAS ushers in a new era full of possibilities.

Robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) is opening new frontiers for doctors — from improving precision and accuracy in spine surgery to increasing access and maneuverability in general surgery.1-3


The shift to RAS for health systems requires a shared commitment by clinicians, hospital administrators, and medical technology innovators. We recognize that comprehensive RAS solutions combine the latest technology with flexible models across disease states — expanding based on evolving needs — and provide clinical and training support. 


Recently we announced the first patient procedure using our new soft-tissue robotic-assisted surgery system.


Learn more about how RAS can help standardize surgical procedures and enable minimally invasive surgery.
