Versius for Surgeons

Versius, a sophisticated tool to help surgeons deliver the highest quality surgical care to patients.

Delivering the best surgical care

The benefits of minimal access surgery for patients are well proven and include reduced pain and surgical site infectioni, as well as reduced likelihood of other surgical complications. But we know that minimal access surgery is complex and demanding to perform for a surgeon. Versius offers a tool that can help surgeons to deliver MAS.

Enhancing your surgical capabilities

Versius complements and extends what you can do, helping to improve outcomes for patients. Compared to manual laparoscopy, the fully articulated wrists, direct hand to instrument mapping, and integrated stable 3D HD visualisation on Versius provides incredible precision, control, dexterity and superb depth perception. This gives you the means to perform surgical steps with greater accuracy and ease.

Operating ergonomically

Laparoscopic surgery is physically and mentally demanding, causing three in four surgeons to experience back pain.ii

Versius has instinctive instrument and vision controls and an open console design allowing you to sit upright or stand, keeping you comfortable for longer each day, with the potential to prolong your career.

Focusing on training and patient safety

Patient safety is a surgeon’s greatest priority. In line with the IDEAL framework, our clinical registry monitors patient outcomes to ensure patient safety. The registry is a pivotal tool for continuous learning and feedback for the surgical community. 

Ongoing training and support

Training for us is about the whole surgical team. We believe in a long-term partnership to deliver the highest surgical care. Our friendly, expert teams of professional trainers go above and beyond to deliver a comprehensive training programme for Versius. The data from our clinical registry will help us identify high performers. Analysis of their techniques will enable us to identify best practice which can be shared with other users.

Versius for Surgical Teams

Putting the whole surgical team at the forefront of surgical care, with Versius.

Providing easy access to your patient

It is important to have access to your patient throughout the procedure. With Versius’ small form factor and ‘collaborative arm technology’, you can safely stand in and amongst the human-sized arms and have easy access to the patient at all times. Versius enables you to prioritise what matters most to you – your patient.  

Supporting team communication

Verbal and non-verbal communication is pivotal in surgery. With an open 3D HD console, Versius provides surgical teams with a clear line of sight to support communication that is pivotal to good patient outcomes. The benefits of teamwork will only be supported, and not hindered, by Versius in the OR.

Ongoing training and support

Training for us is about the whole surgical team. Our friendly, expert teams of professional trainers go above and beyond to deliver a long-term, comprehensive training programme for Versius. The data from our clinical registry will help us identify high performers. Analysis of their techniques will enable us to identify best practice which can be shared with other users.

 

Our professional trainers will visit sites after clinical use has commenced to assess practice and provide ongoing guidance where necessary.

We know value-based medicine is important to you. Versius has been designed to make the cost of performing robotic MAS affordable whilst delivering high-quality patient care. This allows you to deliver procedures traditionally performed via open surgery through a minimal access technique, with all the benefits that brings for patient and hospital alike.

 

Description
Versius for Hospitals

We believe in value-based medicine that enables hospitals to provide their patients treatment that is more accessible, less invasive and gets patients feeling better, sooner.

Delivering value-based medicine

Treatment needs to be cost-effective throughout the entire patient care cycle no matter your hospital’s size. Our cost per case managed service and flexible financing options have been developed to provide clear cost-effectiveness to all hospitals.

Integrates into virtually any OR

To enhance patient care and maximise already busy OR schedules, new technology needs to adapt into your environment. Versius integrates seamlessly into existing workflows and doesn’t take over valuable OR space. With a small footprint and ease of movement, Versius can be introduced to the OR easily and quickly.

Investing in surgery

We’re committed to research and recognise how data can enhance the way we look after patients. The Versius registry is one way we are improving patient care on a global scale. In accordance with the IDEAL framework, the registry provides our partners the opportunity to review procedural data and clinical outcomes.
