Robotic-Assisted Surgery Expands Capabilities

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

Our goal is to use innovation to help standardize procedures and improve patient outcomes.
