Montpellier, France, June 8, 2020 – On June 4, 2020, Professor Boris GUIU and his team at Montpellier University Hospital (France) successfully treated a 56-year-old patient with liver tumor using Quantum Surgical’s medical robot. Quantum Surgical, an innovative surgical robotic company founded in 2017, developed its robot in record time thanks to a highly talented and experienced multidisciplinary team. This device, a combination of powerful software and robotic platform, assists the physician in performing safer, more efficient and less invasive oncology treatments. Through Quantum Surgical’s device, Professor GUIU was able to plan the procedure on the patient’s 3D images and then perform the intervention with high precision, guided by the robot. This world premiere was accomplished as part of a clinical trial that is being carried out in three University Hospitals in France. “This first thermoablation with robotic assistance completely treated the tumor with an excellent margin. We couldn’t have done better. The patient is doing very well. He went home the very next day, ready to return to normal life,” explains Professor Boris GUIU, Interventional Radiologist, Head of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology of Saint Eloi (Montpellier University Hospital) “With this world premiere, Quantum Surgical is making a striking mark in the medical robotics industry and strengthening its ambition,” announces Bertin NAHUM, President and Founder of Quantum Surgical.
