LAKUMED Hospitals to Begin Senhance Program


Asensus Surgical, a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between the surgeon and patient to pioneer a new era of Performance-Guided Surgery™, today announced LAKUMED hospitals has entered into an agreement to lease and utilize a Senhance® Surgical System. The system will be utilized at the Landshut-Achdorf hospital which is located in the Landshut region, just outside of Munich, Germany.

“We are very pleased that LAKUMED hospitals have chosen to utilize a Senhance Surgical System,” said Anthony Fernando, Asensus Surgical President and CEO. “Germany is the largest surgical market in Europe, and has grown into the largest European country for Senhance in terms of users, surgeries and hospitals. German surgeons are very advanced in minimally invasive surgery, and Senhance is an ideal tool to support their continued advancement.”

Asensus Surgical’s technology platform, Senhance® Surgical System, is the first of its kind digital laparoscopic platform that leverages augmented intelligence to provide unmatched performance and patient outcomes through machine learning. Senhance goes beyond the typical surgical robotic systems, providing surgical assurance through haptic feedback, eye-tracking camera control, and 3D visualization, and is the first platform to offer 3 mm instruments (the smallest instrument available in the world on a robotic surgical platform).

“The Senhance System is a welcome addition to our program in surgery,” said Prof. Dr. med. Johannes Schmidt, hospital medical director and surgeon in the department of general, abdominal and thoracic surgery. “We are particularly pleased to offer ultra-minimally invasive surgery with robotic instruments as small as 3 mm, and are driven to help pioneer the new capabilities of Performance-Guided Surgery to the benefit of our patients.”

“Our hospital is committed to being a leader in combining the most advanced medical technologies with the greatest skill and caring of our surgeons and staff,” said Jakob Fuchs, CEO of Lakumed. “We evaluated the Senhance Surgical System and were impressed with its ability to add performance capabilities to our precise and delicate surgeries.”
