MMI has announced it has partnered with ab medica to expand global commercialization of its Symani Surgical System. A distributor of pioneering robotic technologies for 40 years, ab medica will enhance MMI’s visibility across Italy and expand provider and patient access to microsurgical robotic technology.
“ab medica has been on the leading edge of surgical robotics technology since the earliest days of the technology, and they are a highly trusted resource for innovators and healthcare providers,” said Nicola Matz, VP, EMEA Sales of MMI. “Our partnership marks a significant step toward expanding the footprint of the Symani Surgical System and providing patients, such as those with breast cancer-related lymphedema or head and neck cancer, with more options for receiving complex care. For healthcare providers already working with ab medica, this will create a seamless connection to the Symani Surgical System and help to meet the growing demand for these procedures.”
The Symani Surgical System is a first-of-its-kind robotic technology that uniquely addresses the scale and complexities of microsurgery and supermicrosurgery. By allowing surgeons to replicate the natural movements of the human hand at the micro scale, it can expand treatment options for patients in need of soft tissue open surgical procedures, such as free flap reconstructions, lymphatic surgery, and trauma reconstructions. It is designed to help restore quality of life for more patients, accelerate the number of surgeons able to push the boundaries of complex procedures for delicate anatomy, and enable hospitals to expand their open surgical programs.
“We are deeply committed to advancing innovative technology in the operating room and are pleased to add the Symani Surgical System to our partnerships,” said Filippo Pacinotti, Business Director at ab medica. “Working with MMI will significantly strengthen our portfolio with a robotic technology for open surgery at the micro level for precision reconstruction of small blood vessels, nerves and lymphatics using the world’s smallest wristed surgical instruments.”
ab medica supports medical robotics solutions across a broad range of specialties. Since 1984, it has provided training, clinical support and technical service to ensure physicians and staff at the point of care have the resources they need to optimize the capabilities of medical technology. As one of the earliest distributors of surgical robotics platforms, ab medica has deep expertise in medical device distribution in Europe and a vast array of resources to support robotics programs at hospitals and health systems.
