XSurgical Opens International Headquarters in US

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
XSurgical, developer of a remotely controlled surgical robot, has established new international headquarters in Cambridge, Mass.

The new headquarters houses a laboratory for engineers to bring the third iteration of the surgical robot called Gamma to completion. The technology is designed for use in disaster recovery and battlefield operations, and will be able to travel into space. It will also be able to perform minimally invasive surgery, guided by surgeons from remote locations. In addition, XSurgical is developing the artificial intelligence that will make subsequent robots fully autonomous.

The Italian company was relocated to the U.S. under director Gianluca De Novi, Ph.D., a researcher and professor at Harvard Medical School and instructor of augmented/virtual reality rendering at Harvard Extension School, with the intention of completing the technology and bringing the product to market.

“Cambridge [Mass.] is the perfect location for XSurgical, bringing together the incredible talent from the [surrounding] universities and the entrepreneurial culture of the business community,” De Novi said. “As a company, we will be focused on the crucial aspects of surgery simulation, such as real-time gesture analysis, task recognition, and augmented reality.”
