Asensus Surgical, Inc. (NYSE American: ASXC), a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between the surgeon and the patient to pioneer a new era of Performance-Guided Surgery™, today announced that the Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital at the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich (“LMU”), located in Munich, Germany, has entered into an agreement to lease and utilize a Senhance® Surgical System.

“We are very excited that the LMU University Hospital will be utilizing a Senhance System as part of their pediatric surgery department. This is a significant milestone for Asensus as this represents the first Senhance program devoted entirely to pediatric procedures,” said Anthony Fernando, Asensus Surgical President and CEO. “Senhance has been developed to help surgeons deliver better patient outcomes by utilizing advanced minimally invasive instrumentation such as 3mm instruments, combined with haptic feedback for added fidelity for the surgeon. We look forward to partnering with the pediatric team at LMU University Hospital to transform the way they deliver care to their pediatric patients.”

Senhance Surgical System powered by the Intelligent Surgical Unit™ (ISU™) is designed to increase surgeon control and reduce surgical variability through the addition of machine vision, augmented intelligence, and deep learning capabilities throughout the surgical experience.

Pediatric surgeons are skilled at minimally invasive approaches to treat a wide range of patients, from infants to adolescents. Working with small, delicate anatomy presents unique obstacles for the surgeons, including challenges with visualization, instrument control, and surgical access. Senhance’s digital fulcrum and tremor filtration can minimize traumatic forces exerted by instruments on the abdominal wall. The combination of these two features creates an optimal micro laparoscopic working environment for the surgeon. Furthermore, the Senhance system is the only robotic assisted surgical system in the world to provide fully reusable 3-millimeter instruments as well as haptic feedback. These advanced capabilities, only available with the Senhance Surgical System, have the potential to reduce invasiveness, especially in complex pediatric surgery, thereby meaningfully improving outcomes for those patients.

“As a pediatric surgeon for over 16 years, I am driven to find the most effective and least invasive way to help smaller patients. We are constantly looking to leverage the digital transformation of patient care to deliver the best possible outcomes to the children that come to our facilities,” said Prof. Dr. Oliver Muensterer, Chairman and Professor, Pediatric Surgery, Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital of the LMU Munich. “Until now, there has not been an advanced robotic option for pediatric procedures, instead we have been forced to rely on more traditional, more invasive, procedural solutions. The platform will be a great asset to our hospital, and we are very excited to launch our Senhance pediatric surgical program.”

Germany continues to be a focus market for the Company due its size, as it is the largest surgical market in Europe, and its hospitals’ interests to focus on adopting novel technologies in the operating room. With nine installations in the country, the Company has seen the positive benefits of its commercial and clinical strategies, and expects to see continued growth in the country moving forward.
