Information for Patients

Asensus Surgical is digitizing surgery and pioneering a new way of operating while using techniques surgeons are already familiar with. This type of surgery is designed to increase control and precision for an added layer of safety, and with the smallest possible incisions, it allows for less scarring and shorter recovery times.

An Introduction to Minimally Invasive Surgery 

Over recent decades, less invasive surgeries have led to minimal scarring and shorter hospital stays. 

The term Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) describes a range of techniques surgeons use to minimize incisions to the body during a procedure. It includes laparoscopy and robotic surgery, two ways of operating that involve instruments fitted through small openings in the body as well as a camera so the surgeon can see without making a larger incision. 

Asensus Surgical uses robotic-assisted technology in conjunction with laparoscopic techniques that many surgeons around the world are familiar with. Our system provides surgeons with Augmented Intelligence capabilities for increased precision and control as well as a full suite of reusable 3mm and 5mm instruments. 

About the Senhance® Surgical System from Asensus

What is Augmented Intelligence?

The Next Level of Confidence

Unique features of the Senhance Surgical System make it easier for surgeons to operate successfully every time.

When surgeons use a Senhance system, they gain tools that enhance how they see, feel, and execute the next move.

A small camera moves in accordance with your surgeon’s eye movements, letting them instantly see any part of the surgical area. A 3DHD screen provides an accurate view of the entire area.

The instruments your surgeon will use are engineered to provide a realistic sense of touch through slight vibrations communicated to their hands. This is called haptic feedback, and it helps your surgeon as they navigate around anatomy during a procedure.

What is Recovery Like?

Be sure to discuss your recovery plan with your surgeon and your doctor. The length of your hospital stay, pain, and recovery time depend on many factors. With Asensus’ suite of smaller instruments, our goal is to help you feel less discomfort after your procedure and experience a faster recovery than you would with larger incisions.
