Arrigato Mr. Surgical Roboto – Ferré, Usen and Fernando steer Medtech toward digital surgery

In the longest DeviceTalks Weekly Podcast ever created, the leaders of three digital surgery companies – two with robotic components – explain where their systems will fit into Medtech future.

Anthony Fernando, the CEO of newly names Asensus (formerly Transenterix) maps out the company’s future in delivering a better solution for laproscopic procedure.

Todd Usen – a veteran of big Medtech companies – explains why he swapped P&Ls for just the L’s of a start-up Active Surgical, which is building a surgical mapping tool that could help surgeons avoid deadly errors.

Finally, Maurice Ferre,’ founder of orthopedic pioneer MAKO Surgical, says Memix is positioned to grab the opportunity being missed by larger medtech companies building their own robotic systems. He also walks us through the dinner where Stryker CEO Kevin Lobo made an offer that MAKO did not refuse.
