Moon Surgical today announced the successful completion of the first 10 laparoscopic surgeries with its Maestro system in France.
The procedures — bariatric and abdominal surgery procedures — took place at the Arnault Tzanck Institute in Nice, France. Laparoscopic surgeons Dr. Benjamin Cadière and Dr. Georges Debs performed them. According to a news release, the procedures mark the expansion of the hospital’s bariatric practice.
Maestro’s first commercial procedures in France follow last month’s first U.S. clinical cases with an initial version of Maestro in Jacksonville, Florida. Moon Surgical says the latest development marks the first use of a new, commercially ready surgical robot platform.
