First robotic nephrectomy uses Zeus system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Just months after Computer Motion's ZEUS robotic surgical system was used in the first minimally invasive robotic heart valve surgery in the US (see Clinica No 907, p 16), the company has announced the world's first minimally invasive, robotic-assisted nephrectomy using the Zeus system at a hospital in France. The non-functioning kidney was removed from a 77-year-old woman through one 10mm and the 5mm ports. In a separate development, the US FDA has approved a multicentre, randomised trial to assess the Zeus system during coronary artery bypass procedures, said the Santa Barbara, California-based company.
