Transforming surgery. For good.
Versius® enables patients to benefit from the many advantages of minimal access surgery (MAS); surgeons benefit from the greater dexterity and vision that robotics brings, whilst reducing the physical and mental effort required to perform MAS; and hospitals benefit by being able to offer the likelihood of higher quality MAS that is cost-effective across the entire patient episode.

Year of investment:2016
- Differentiated, novel concept for next generation medical robotic system protected by significant patent portfolio
- Rapidly growing global market for medical robots driven by growing appreciation of the benefits of minimal access surgery
“As surgeons, our aim is to provide the most effective care possible for our patients and I believe that using robotic assisted keyhole surgery will be a vital part of this in the years to come. The Versius system could help to provide surgeons with greater precision and improved vision during surgery, as well as taking the physical strain during long procedures. The portability of the system is a big bonus for us too as we can transfer it in minutes to another operating theatre to be readied for the next patient.”
