There are about 48 million surgeries in the U.S. each year, and about 2% have a complication. That’s roughly a million patients.
Surgeons, scientists, and others are working to reduce this toll by harnessing advances in computer processing power and connectivity. These data-centered innovations may allow clinicians and care teams to expand their capabilities in precision medicine, allowing them to better treat their patients.
One key growth area is more precisely tracking the technical abilities of trainee surgeons so that they can become more proficient at the skills they need to succeed.
Intuitive is helping lead these exciting advances by helping hospitals and surgeons become more efficient.
