Intuitive Surgical gets CE mark for robot-assisted surgical system

MDBR Staff Writer Published 27 April 2017

Intuitive Surgical has secured CE mark approval for its new da Vinci X robotic-assisted surgical system.

The da Vinci X system is said to provide surgeons and hospitals with access to the firm’s portfolio of advanced robotic-assisted surgical technologies and full ecosystem of programs, support, services, and solutions.

Intuitive has developed da Vinci surgical systems to enable surgeons for carrying out minimally invasive surgery.

Featuring advanced capabilities, the new system also includes the same vision cart and surgeon consoles that are common in the da Vinci Xi system.

The new system, which allows optimized and focused-quadrant surgery, features flexible port placement and advanced 3D digital optics. It also integrates latest advanced instruments and accessories similar to the firm’s flagship system.

The system takes the support of set-up technology that uses voice and laser guidance and drape design to simplify surgery preparation.

Intuitive Surgical CEO Dr Gary Guthart said: “Over the past 21 years, Intuitive Surgical pioneered robotic-assisted surgery and we continue to lead the way in developing and bringing to market innovative technologies, outcomes-focused products and value-oriented solutions.

“Our surgeon, hospital and healthcare customers around the world told us that robotic-assisted surgery matters for their programs and their patients while underscoring the importance of providing choice from a clinical, technological and cost standpoint.”

Intuitive Surgical US sales senior vice president Henry Charlton said: “The da Vinci X System was designed to expand access to the benefits that robotic-assisted surgery delivers to patients, surgeons and hospitals around the world, by providing a cost-conscious, high quality, highly capable solution.”
