CMR Surgical robotic system Versius completes in-human procedures
Mark Slack, Chief Medical Officer, CMR Surgical explains how they have completed the first 30 in-human procedures using the Versius surgical robotic system.
“This first-in-human series is a significant milestone in bringing Versius to operating theatres around the world. These initial results are positive and we look forward to further advancing our mission to bring the benefits of minimal access surgery to everyone who needs it.”
30 laparoscopic procedures were completed as part of a clinical trial at Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital & Research Center in Pune, India, by Consultant Oncologist and General Surgeon Dr. Dhananjay Kelkar and his team. The surgeries consisted of minor, intermediate and major gynaecological and upper gastrointestinal (GI) procedures. No adverse events were reported as a result of the use of Versius after a 30 day follow up.
Following the completion of the first-in-human series, CMR Surgical will work closely with surgeons and hospitals on a clinical introduction of the Versius® Surgical Robotic System to bring the benefits of minimal access surgery to patients around the world.
