Medtronic’s Hugo Robotic-Assisted Surgery System Gets CE Mark
Medtronic has received a CE mark certification for its Hugo robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) system.
The approval covers the device’s use for urologic and gynecologic procedures, which make up about half of all robotic procedures performed today.
Medtronic says its Hugo RAS system was designed to address the cost and usage barriers that have limited the adoption of robotic surgery for the past 20 years. Clinicians from participating hospitals will get hands-on training at Medtronic facilities in how to use the robotic equipment.
