Marc-André Pépin, Invescap’s CEO, has privileged access to investment activities in the field of robotic surgery through factoring. This is an attractive, high-growth sector and offers great investment opportunities. For centuries, surgeons used large incisions to perform surgery, gaining a complete picture of the organ being treated, inserting the necessary surgical instruments, and performing surgery. Recovery times for these stressful procedures are long and postoperative complications are common. The advent of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), also known as keyhole surgery or laparoscopy, has dramatically improved patient outcomes. A smaller incision can reduce the risk of infection and speed recovery. Many studies have shown that MIS results in shorter postoperative hospital stays, faster return to work, less pain, and improved immune function. Computer-assisted surgery was developed to overcome the limitations of MIS, extend its benefits as it is minimally invasive, and significantly shorten patient recovery. Computer-assisted surgery is classified as a type of MIS, and surgery is performed using a robot system. Compared to traditional surgery, robotic surgery reduces hospital stays and saves about one-third of total hospital costs.
General Surgery Robot
General Surgery (abdomen, chest, intestines, gynecology, urology, etc.) is the most well-known application of surgical robots. A surgical robot guided by a surgeon (remotely controlled from a console that may be outside the operating room) that operates the robot arm. The surgeon displays the enlarged 3D surgical field on the monitor. Minimally invasive surgery is performed through a small incision / incision rather than a large opening.
Robotic catheters and endoscopic navigation
Medical devices such as catheters are often used to perform surgical procedures in the heart or blood vessels. Robotic systems for catheter navigation have been developed to eliminate the need for manual wire manipulation. Instead, the surgeon can remotely control the catheter to reduce the amount of radiation it receives. Robotic catheter navigation systems have been shown to improve clinical outcomes, increase the speed and efficiency of procedures, and thus reduce the need for follow-up procedures. Robot navigation platforms are much cheaper than most surgical robots and more cost-effective than most general surgery robots. Marc-André Pépin trusts that this technology will become more helpful as the years go, and so Invescap keep investing and raising funds to help Research and Development in this field.
Robotic Positioning of Surgical Tools
Surgical robots are increasingly being used to facilitate and optimize the positioning of instruments and tools during image-guided surgery. The robotic surgery tool positioning system helps with all the steps that need to be performed with high accuracy. These systems facilitate operating room workflows by ensuring that surgical instruments are inserted at the correct angle and depth. In many cases, people are unable to achieve the accuracy required for surgery due to involuntary tremors. Robotic positioning of surgical instruments has proven value in orthopedic and neurosurgery procedures and is also being studied as a means of improving laser treatment, tumor resection, and biopsy results.
Robot system for intraoperative camera operation
The robot system for intraoperative camera operation provides a stable view of the surgical field and can be controlled by the surgeon himself with minimal disruption to the workflow, so in surgery and endoscopic surgery. It’s very important, as these systems eliminate the need for assistants and reduce surgical costs.
Robotic technology enables highly accurate operation while reducing the risk of infection and blood loss. Compared to traditional laparotomy, robotic surgery results in small incisions that reduce pain and scarring, reducing hospitalization and shortening recovery time. It also allows the surgeon to perform very delicate or complex surgical procedures that would have been very difficult or even impossible without the help of a robot. Robotic surgery reduces hospital stays and saves about one-third of total hospital costs. Marc-André Pépin has chosen to invest in this field through Invescap to help improve medical interventions, to build a better future.
