Robot surgery market set to change

Maija Palmer | financial times | 17 June 2015

PA’s Simon Burnell, a technology expert, is quoted in an article in the Financial Times Connected Business report on the market for surgical robots.

The article addresses that there are certain surgery procedures in the US which are carried out by robots and that in many cases, patients are now demanding robot surgery due to smaller incisions and the exacting precision.

Simon explains the update in robotic surgery: “In the US, where patients have more choice in medical care, hospitals have to have these systems to attract customers. Whether it is right or not, this plays a significant part in the uptake.”

Simon talks about the non-traditional companies that are also entering the field. He explains that Google recently signed a deal with Johnson & Johnson’s medical device company, Ethicon, to create surgical robots that use artificial intelligence. 

Simon explains that manufacturers may be experts in creating the surgical equipment, but Google will bring its big data analysis capabilities that will take this technology to a different level.
