Making Sense of Robotic Surgery

Merging robotic surgery with laparoscopy

The surgeon is sterile while using Dexter. He or she can switch between robotics and laparoscopy in less than 20 seconds. Instead of replacing the laparoscopy by robotics, Dexter enhances the laparoscopy with the benefits of robotics. Dexter allows direct contact with the patient at any point in time and provides the access to the patient best suited for the task.

Eliminating the complexity of robotic surgery

The benefits of robotic-assisted surgery: precision, instrument dexterity and an ergonomic posture for the surgeon are provided, while keeping the simplicity of a laparoscopy. Quick setup, low footprint and a versatile concept limit the space Dexter requires and allow comprehensive access to the patient.

Reducing cost by up to 90% compared to traditional robotic solutions

Dexter allows the use of robotic surgery at the price of a laparoscopy. Why? Instead of creating a complex robotic solution with up to five arms and a proprietary imaging system, Dexter is a lean, two-arm solution that augments the surgeon’s hands with the dexterity, precision and ergonomics – while maintaining the versatility of laparoscopy.

Advantages

Surgeons

Accessing the benefits of robotic surgery, natively integrated into laparoscopy. Dexter combines the benefits of both techniques in a versatile setup. By providing an open robotic surgery platform, there is full access to innovation in the area of visualization and energy outside of robotic surgery.

Nurses

Dexter eliminates the complexity of robotics by doing away with the long and cumbersome setup and breakdown of surgical robots. As the laparoscopic setup remains unchanged, the surgeon is beside the operating table, and communication with the team is easy.

Hospitals

Ability to offer robotic surgery to patients without depleting OR budgets and limiting the ability to invest in innovation. Dexter provides the competitive advantage to all hospitals giving the best care to their patients.

Patients

Patients are seeking the best possible care. Robotic surgery brings the latest technology into the operating room and Dexter combines robotic technology with the best of minimally invasive surgery.

Affordability without compromise
