The launch took place at Medtronic's state-of-the-art Surgical Robotics Experience Center (SREC) in Gurugram
India Medtronic, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Medtronic, showcased its new robotic-assisted surgery platform, Hugo RAS system, at its state-of-the-art Surgical Robotics Experience Center (SREC), which was inaugurated in Gurugram.
The centre was inaugurated by Dr BK Rao, Chairman NABH, Chairman ASSOCHAM National Health Committee and Former Chairman- Board of Management at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Delhi in the presence of Chief Guest, Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog.
Committed to delivering solutions that help surgeons and operating room staff achieve procedural and clinical proficiency, the SREC will focus on standardised training for surgeries with the Hugo RAS system.
The SREC is the company's first in the Asia Pacific and one of ten world-class facilities around the globe today where clinicians can experience and train on the Hugo RAS system.
The Hugo RAS system — Medtronic's solution to historic cost and utilisation barriers that have kept surgical robotics out of reach for many hospitals — is a modular, multi-quadrant platform designed for a broad range of soft-tissue procedures.
With the Hugo RAS system, Medtronic is building on its decades-long commitment to bring the benefits of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) to more patients around the world. With MIS, patients experience fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, and faster return to normal activities.
