Intuitive unveils India’s first remote surgical case observation technology

11 January 2022 | News

Enables the real-time exchange of audio and video between the remote observer and the operating surgeon

Intuitive India has launched India's first remote surgical case observation technology, ‘Intuitive Telepresence’ (ITP). The technology enables surgeons to learn from expert surgeons without the need for travel or time away from their busy practice.  

 

The ITP uses proprietary technology that enables the real-time exchange of audio and video between the remote observer and the operating surgeon. Through this, observers can be virtually present in the operating room (OR) where a procedure with a da Vinci system is being performed.

 

ITP technology is HIPPA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant which provides a secure platform for remote learning on da Vinci Robotic platform.

 

With the increased adoption of virtual ways of working since the spread of COVID-19, Intuitive has, with the ITP, reimagined continuous learning for surgeons by providing this seamless and secure platform to help bring learning to the surgeons—rather than asking them always travel for advanced training. 

 

Intuitive has been running programmes such as the Intuitive Robotic Onboarding Programme and Education (I-ROPE) and the Roving Robot Programme in a continued effort to support strong robotics programs throughout India.
