Robotic-assisted surgery opens new frontiers
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.
Innovation is ongoing. In 2021, our soft-tissue robotic-assisted surgery system received Conformité Européenne (CE) Mark approval in Europe, and later it received Health Canada license, in both cases for urologic and gynecologic procedures.
