Moon Surgical Expands to Gynecological Surgery
By: PR Newswire Association LLC. - 03 Apr 2024Back to overview list

BESANÇON, France and SAN FRANCISCO, April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Franche-Comté Polyclinic, part of ELSAN, the leading private hospital group in France, and Moon Surgical, a French-American pioneer in collaborative robotics, today announced that the Maestro System is now being used clinically in gynecological laparoscopic procedures.

Over the past few weeks, the commercial Maestro System has been used routinely by eight surgeons across two facilities in France in 20 different clinical indications covering abdominal, bariatric, and most recently, gynecological surgery. Hysterectomy, cystectomy, adnexectomy and ovariectomy procedures were completed following the same onsite, one-hour long training curriculum, as for the previously completed surgical cases with Maestro.

"Performing gynecological procedures using the Maestro was natural," states Dr. Chehab, an OB/GYN at the Franche-Comté Polyclinic in Besançon, France, part of the Elsan private hospitals network. "I could use the same instruments I operate with every day and docking them was very simple. I was even able to have the Maestro hold the uterine manipulator, which is typically done by my assistant holding a particularly uncomfortable pose."

"Maestro's adaptability was already demonstrated in the field of digestive surgery, where the system has been used for pretty much any indication successfully. Expanding our experience to gynecology is an exciting step towards our goal of providing unprecedented surgical assistance to soft tissue surgical teams everywhere," stated Anne Osdoit, CEO of Moon Surgical.

With over two hundred patients treated to date, Moon Surgical plans on executing its Limited Market Release in the EU and USA throughout 2024, broadening the Maestro System usage to additional clinical indications and low acuity settings.
