Robotic surgical system.

ROSA® acts as a kind of “GPS” for the skull, and may be used for various types of cranial intervention requiring surgical planning based on pre-operative data, precise location of the patient’s anatomy and accurate positioning and handling of instruments.
The device assists the surgeon with a wide variety of medical indications and surgical interventions such as biopsies, electrode implantation for functional procedures (stimulation of the cerebral cortex, deep brain stimulation), open skull surgical procedures requiring a navigation device, endoscopic interventions and any other “key-hole” procedures.
