Stefan Weber, professor for Image-guided Therapy at the ARTORG Center and CEO of CASCINATION, will hold a keynote speech on the current state and future of surgical tools with robotic autonomy in the operating theater, using the example of cochlear implantation, at the 2021 Closing Ceremony of the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics, 29 June.
In his talk entitled “Robotic Cochlear Surgery: Towards the Realm of Certainty” Prof Weber will demonstrate how robots can become indispensable allies in delicate minimally invasive surgery in the inner ear, like cochlear implantation. Over a decade of his research resulted in the development of robotic cochlear implantation and the first patient procedure in 2016. In 2018 CASCINATION AG launched the HEARO®, the world’s first task-autonomous high-precision surgical robot used in hospitals today.
At the Hamlyn Symposium Award and Closing Ceremony, the second keynote will be delivered by Jacques Marescaux, Hospital-University Institute of Strasbourg, titled “Imaging, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence: the next steps in Minimally Invasive Surgery“.
