Bertin Nahum

CEO and co-founder of Quantum Surgical.

Bertin Nahum, a French citizen of Beninese origin, developed a robot called Rosa™ which assists surgeons with brain and spinal surgery. He founded Medtech SAS in 2002 (the company that conceived the surgical robots). These robots “simply” help surgeons perform their tasks efficiently and with precision. Bertin Nahum is a graduate of The National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA Lyon, France) and holds a Master of Science in Robotics from Coventry University (England).

Before setting up Medtech, Bertin Nahum worked for about a decade for leading companies like Computer Motion Inc. (Cardiac surgery, urology…), Integrated Surgical Systems Inc. (Orthopedic surgery), IMMI SA (Neurosurgery) where he had the opportunity to develop robot-assisted solutions.

Bertin Nahum's first robot, named called BRIGIT™, assisted doctors with orthopedic surgery as it provided mechanical support for sawing bones with an arm that guides the surgeon and helps him make precise cuts. Zimmer Inc., the world leader in orthopedic surgery, acquired the patent portfolio from Medtech in 2006.
