CMR Surgical announce collaboration with Ethicon 

CMR Surgical (abbreviated to CMR) recently announced a collaboration agreement with medical technology company Ethicon (which is part of Johnson & Johnson), with the aim of expanding choice across advanced laparoscopic instruments and surgical robotics.

The Versius system from CMR represents the next gen of collaborative surgical robotics, along with an industry-leading clinical registry and a comprehensive digital ecosystem which compliment Ethicon’s surgical technologies. Being a global leader in medical tech, Ethicon specializes in top of the range, clinically differentiated surgical technologies, and also brings a wide range of digital solutions and products which provide insight and education for surgeons.

This targeted collaboration will focus on specific hospitals in the private sector within France, Germany, Brazil and Italy, and will also enable commercial teams from Ethicon and CMR to offer select hospitals the advantages of their combined complimentary portfolios, streamlining and simplifying the process required for surgeons to acquire such leading tools, which cater for the full range of surgery needs.

Per Vegard Nerseth, Chief Executive Officer of CMR Surgical, comments: “Each patient’s surgery has distinct requirements to ensure that an optimal outcome is achieved. By entering into this collaboration agreement with Ethicon in select markets, CMR believes that this combination of expertise in minimal access surgery and digital innovation will deliver an optimised offering to customers. CMR looks forward to progressing this agreement in strategically important regions as CMR continues to rapidly expand on a global scale.”

Versius is currently the market’s only small and modular portable robot, and is suitable for every size of surgical care centre and hospital. The system provides surgeons with the versatility to perform robotic and manual laparoscopic procedures, which gives them the freedom to decide which way to provide the best possible surgical care for patients.

This agreement with Ethicon is in alignment with CMR’s commercialization strategy of rapid global expansion, continuing to provide Versius Surgical Robotics Systems to hospitals across key geographies. CMR continues to work and collaborate independently, directly promoting and selling Versius to customers within these markets. Currently, more than 100 Versius systems have now been installed around the world. The company also continues to invest heavily in high quality training and servicing, which is offered to customers who have adopted Versius. This reinforces how important education is when introducing new surgical robotics programmes, bringing together state-of-the-art tech, servicing and education to deliver benefits for both surgeons and patients.
