CMR Surgical, which develops the Versius Surgical Robotic System, has announced that the robot has been used in 5,000 surgical procedures around the world. The 5,000th procedure was performed at Argenteuil Hospital, a public health center in Paris, where Dr. Patrick Bagan and his team performed a successful lung bi-segmentectomy for cancer.

The company said Versius is now routinely used by surgeons across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Latin America to perform routine and complex procedures across a range of specialties, including gynecology, colorectal surgery, thoracic surgery, general surgery and urology – from hernia repairs and hysterectomies to radical prostatectomies and lower anterior resections.

“I’m honored to reach this significant milestone with our partners, CMR and the Versius system,” said Dr. Bagan, thoracic and vascular surgeon and head of department at Argenteuil Hospital. “I’m delighted to report that this complex procedure went as planned and the patient is recovering well. In thoracic surgery, Versius has transformed how we treat lung cancer at Argenteuil and patients are seeing the benefits.”

“We have two Versius surgical robots here and we routinely complete many successful cases every week,” he added. “Because it is small and modular, we can easily move the systems around the hospital and we regularly have two Versius procedures in different surgical specialties happening simultaneously.”

“5,000 cases is an important milestone for us at CMR,” said Per Vegard Nerseth, CEO of CMR Surgical. “We set out to transform surgery for patients, and we truly believe we are doing that as we expand into new countries and partner with more and more hospitals and surgeons around the world.”
