The PRECEYES Surgical System

The University of Oxford has already conducted a trial of PRECEYES Surgical System. The robot conducts surgery for age-related macular degeneration. While some patients needed membranes removed from their eyes, others had a buildup of blood underneath the retina. Next, they scientists plan to use the surgical robots to dispense gene therapy to the retina.

The CorPath System

The CorPath System from Corindus Vascular Robotics allows doctors to practice in the virtual world before he begins the actual operation. It also facilitates remote surgery. The company called it 'the first remote telerobotic interventional platform.'

A cardiovascular surgeon in India used the system to perform a 15-minute procedure on a patient who was approximately 20 miles away.

The Monarch Platform

The Monarch platform developed by Auris Health Inc. is used for therapeutic and diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures. It is a combination of flexible robotics, micro-instrumentation, data science, and other technologies.

The Mako Rio

It is the first robot approved for knee surgeries. A hospital in Hamilton, Ontario started using the Mako Rio on patients in January 2019. Based on the patient's CT scan, the robot makes a 3D model of the procedure and provides real-time feedback to the surgeons. The hospital plans to use the surgical robot for hip replacements too.

The Versius

Developed by CMR Surgical, Versius performs laparoscopic surgeries, also known as keyhole procedures. The robot mimics the human arm and can easily move between operating rooms.
