Under the agreement, GE Healthcare KoreaGE헬스케어 will provide its CS600 and patient monitor solutions to Intuitive Surgical Korea’s 인튜이티브 서지컬 Da Vinci Training Center. GE will also provide the necessary assistance from training to services.
The CS600 is a compact anesthesia machine that supports multiple patient-tailored ventilation modes.
Intuitive Surgical Korea plans to place seven Da Vinci surgical systems at the Center for Surgical Innovation located at the Digital Media City in Seoul. They will provide domestic and foreign medical professionals with robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery and the clinical skill development training.
“We are glad to introduce our advanced medical technologies, including CS600 series, to a broader range of healthcare professionals through this agreement,” said Andrew Berthusen, general manager of GE Healthcare APAC CCS. “We will keep collaborating with various partners and be a part of the driving growth behind Korea’s advanced medical technology.”
Intuitive Surgical Korea also showed enthusiasm for the MOU
“The effectiveness of advanced medical technologies, including robotic-assisted surgery, is being proven in various fields of disease,” said Sohn Seung-wan 손승완, CEO of Intuitive Surgical Korea. “We hope to offer benefits of those technologies to a broader range of patients by embracing GE’s medical solutions.”
