Franklin Medical Center to Initiate the Installation of the Senhance Surgical System

Franklin Medical Center in Winnsboro, Louisiana has entered into an agreement with Asensus Surgical, Inc. to lease and utilize a Senhance® Surgical System.

“We are excited to bring the Senhance system’s unique capabilities to yet another innovative hospital in the United States,” said Anthony Fernando, Asensus Surgical President and CEO. “We are particularly enthusiastic to see hospitals in the United States leveraging the capabilities of the ISU™. With features such as precise real-time intraoperative measurements and digital tags, the ISU’s intraoperative intelligence sets Senhance apart from other current and future robotic systems.”

Asensus Surgical’s technology platform, Senhance Surgical System, is the first of its kind digital laparoscopic platform that leverages augmented intelligence to provide unmatched performance and patient outcomes through machine learning. Senhance goes beyond the typical surgical robotic systems, providing surgical assurance through haptic feedback, eye-tracking camera control, and 3D visualization, and is the first platform to offer 3 mm instruments (the smallest instrument available in the world on a robotic surgical platform). The Senhance Surgical System is powered by the Intelligent Surgical Unit™ (ISU). The ISU enables machine vision-driven control of the camera for a surgeon by responding to commands and recognizing certain objects and locations in the surgical field, and allows a surgeon to change the visualized field of view using the movement of their instruments.

“Prior to our adoption of Senhance, we avoided adding a soft tissue robotics platform to our general surgery department because of a lack of meaningful benefits offered to our surgeons and patients by competing platforms. That has changed with Senhance and the platform’s innovative intelligent capabilities and laparoscopic foundation,” said Dr. David Gutierrez, Chief of General Surgery at Franklin Medical Center. “Senhance adds a new dynamic to soft tissue abdominal robotics, one that we believe will improve our surgical outcomes, reduce the burden of recovery placed upon our patients, and allows us to bring the highest quality of care to all those we serve.”
