Germany, Europe’s medtech powerhouse, installs first Versius system – CMR Surgical

Written by | 25 Feb 2021 | Surgery

CMR Surgical (CMR) has announced the introduction of its Versius Surgical Robotic System in Germany.

Klinikum Chemnitz – a leading public hospital based in Saxony – is the first German hospital to install Versius, which has now been used in over 1,000 clinical cases across Europe, Australia and India.

Versius will be used by Klinikum Chemnitz in a broad range of laparoscopic (minimal access or keyhole) procedures. In addition, the hospital will undertake an early stage clinical programme in partnership with international experts to explore the use of Versius in thoracics. Introduction into Germany marks an important milestone for CMR, as one of the largest surgical robotics markets in Europe. The country is renowned for early adoption and development of cutting-edge medtech innovations and last year the government confirmed €3 billion funding for hospitals to boost their digitalisation – including introducing more surgical robotics. Klinikum Chemnitz is widely recognised in Germany as a leader in digitally integrated healthcare solutions.
