QUOTED. June 7, 2018. Richard Trimlett.
Sutrue Ltd. says it's working on an robotic/endoscopic suturing device that will make surgeries easier, with quicker recoveries. The current standard of care is not ideal, cardiologist Richard Trimlett, who works with the company, emphasizes here.
"It’s true to say that the majority of operations we’re doing today are still open and that’s not because the patient wants them open; it’s because of the limitations of the technology. There are many improvements to technology that we need, to get to the point where we can do everything as a keyhole operation, and I see this as one of them." – Richard Trimlett, consultant cardiac surgeon, Royal Brompton Hospital (London)
