Medtronic plc (Dublin, Ireland) is showcasing Hugo, its robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) system, at the Arab Health Exhibition & Congress taking place from 30 January – 2 February 2023 at the Dubai Convention and Exhibition Center.

Minimally invasive surgery, including RAS, offers fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, faster return to normal activities, and smaller scars. Together, general surgery, urology, and gynecology account for more than 80% of all RAS procedures performed globally. General surgery is the fastest growing segment within robotic surgery. It encompasses several different surgical specialties including hernia repair, the fourth most common surgery performed globally. At Arab Health 2023, Medtronic is presenting the Hugo RAS system, which combined with Touch Surgery Enterprise, offers a smart, digitally enabled surgical experience. Hugo is already being used at hospitals in the Asia Pacific and Latin America regions in general surgery procedures ranging from common to more complex and include cholecystectomy, inguinal hernia repair, gastric bypass, and lower anterior resection.

A modular system, Hugo combines wristed instruments, 3D visualization, and Medtronic's Touch Surgery Enterprise, a cloud-based surgical video capture and management solution, with dedicated support teams specializing in robotics program optimization, service, and training. Touch Surgery Enterprise is a first-of-its-kind AI-powered platform that makes sharing surgical video simple and provides surgeons with a powerful new training tool. Hugo’s recent robotic-assisted surgery system regulatory approval in Japan provides Medtronic access to the world’s third-largest robotics market while general surgery approval in the EU and Canada open fast-growing hernia specialty.
