hugo robotic surgery system

This can't be the robotic system name we will go head-to-head with da Vinci? Hiring in CT and CO locations now......

Big loss for Medtronic???

Titan Medical appoints Chad A. Zaring as Company's chief commercial officer (CCO), a new position.

Mr. Zaring joins Titan from Medtronic, where he was vice president robotics, imaging and navigation since September 2017.

No sign of Hugo at ORSI this week for the 2nd annual RAWS Congress. Just a near empty MDT booth with mesh and hiking banners. If this platform is so important to Omar and Bob White why not provide a status update? Where’s the flashy power point of the columns with software centered arms, 8 mm lap instruments, open console, Storz vision and integrate surgical chair? Come on MDT give your lap surgeons some hope.....

From MassDevice:

The medical device giant yesterday disclosed a partnership with Karl Storz SE & Co. (Tuttlingen, Germany) to use Karl Storz’s three-dimensional vision systems and visualization components into Medtronic’s upcoming robot-assisted surgical platform.

“Visualization is critical to the successful execution of robotic-assisted surgeries and minimally invasive surgeries,” said Megan Rosengarten, VP and general manager of Medtronic’s surgical robotics business.

“As we developed our robotic platform, we led with surgeons’ input to design a flexible surgical system that meets their needs and the needs of patients around the globe. Surgeons can be confident our robotic-assisted platform will provide market-leading 3D visualization technology combined with best-in-class surgical stapling and energy instruments,” Rosengarten said.

Hugo will be at ORSI by year end. Carving up pigs and killing cadavers with inferior technology to davinci robots from 2008. On track for a niche Chole and Appendectomy robot.

2008 da Vinci, huh?

The only thing known is that Hugo will compete with Intuitive and target laparoscopic abdominal surgery. You have inside info that proves more? How else would you know that the tech won't be as good as 2008 da Vinci? Medtronic is well financed. Wouldn't they want to get it right and not launch until the tech is at least comparable to current technology?

I will say, this robotics platform has one of the larger R&D divisions within Medtronic behind it. I only wish the launch was in the US first and not OUS. The concern is if there are any significant challenges, we may not see it in the states until '22....

All indications are the program is on track. Surgeons have been in providing feedback, testing, etc on the platform and spiral design, focusing on the software development process. These are all early stage concepts still. But Omar says we're on track.

Are you insinuating that Hugo won't hit the market for 2.5 years? I thought human testing was in 2019? I don't know if that is in the states or overseas (India, I believe). Either way, that would be a huge miss if not into almost 2021. Any clarification would be great.

2.5 years, starting today. That's 2100 robots to Hugo's 0

That is embarrassing.

....moreover, MDT mgmt. said it believes the gen surgery industry (broadly) is likely just beginning to approach an inflection point---hence MDT's significant investment to bring forth a technology of its own, even after maintaining the position that robotics was not the way of the future for decades. -- Leerink analyst note post-SAGES.

How many more years will DaVinci be placing robots in hospitals when the first version HUGO robotic system appears?

Intuitive is crushing it in general surgery, with procedures growing over 30% last year. It's their fastest growing specialty by a landslide. Other smaller companies are trying to capture market but Intuitive is so big it's almost impossible for them to get systems in a hospital unless they are for free or as a study. Yes, Medtronic has crazy pricing power but I don't think it will matter unless the product is significantly better or cheaper. Unless you know something more, no one knows if it will be either of those things....

Hugo is the DLR mirosurge robot
