The Florida Hospital Orlando campus will be home to the first commercial unit of the Senhance Surgical System to be installed in the United States.
Now available in the United States, the recently FDA-cleared Senhance Surgical System represents an innovative technology designed to assist surgeons in performing minimally invasive surgery. The system features multiple robotic arms that are controlled by a surgeon seated comfortably at a console. The surgeon controls small surgical instruments with robotic precision while at the same time moving a small scope that tracks the eye movement of the surgeon. The Senhance is the first surgical robotic system to offer the security of haptic force feedback that allows surgeons to feel the forces the instruments generate when handling delicate tissue. The Senhance represents a new era of digital laparoscopy designed to support responsible economics for the hospital, patient and today’s value-based healthcare system.
Todd M. Pope, President and CEO at TransEnterix notes, “We are pleased to announce our first US sale of the Senhance Surgical System. Florida Hospital is a global leader in the application of next generation technologies to care for patients. It’s fitting that Florida Hospital will be the first in the United States to adopt this technology for patient care.”
“The digital operating room of the future has arrived, and our surgeons will continue to be leaders in applying robotic technology, like the Senhance, to benefit our patients across a full range of procedures and specialties,” said Dr. Steve Eubanks, surgeon and Executive Medical Director for the Institute for Surgical Advancement at Florida Hospital. “Our team of clinicians selected the Senhance Surgical System to further our minimally invasive offerings. We believe this robotic system will support our surgeons in maximizing their precision and control during procedures while minimizing costs.”
