Titan Medical Inc. is a Canadian public company, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, that trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TMD) and the OTCQX in the United States (TITXF). Titan is developing the SPORT™ (Single Port Orifice Robotic Technology) Surgical System for use in minimally invasive surgery (“MIS”) that is expected to be commercially available in 2016. Titan’s robotic surgical system is being designed to expand robotic surgery into areas that are currently underserviced. This will allow surgeons to perform procedures within small to medium size surgical spaces such as general surgery and cholecystectomy. Currently, the most common medical procedures for which robotic systems are used are hysterectomies and prostatectomies. Titan plans to expand the scope and obtain approval for various surgical procedures as outlined in their Corporate Presentation.

The SPORT™ Surgical System includes the following:

* a single-port surgeon controlled robotic platform that includes a 3D vision system and interactive instruments for performing MIS procedures, and
* a surgeon workstation that provides the surgeon with an interface to the robotic platform   for controlling the interactive instruments and providing a 3D endoscopic view of inside a patient’s body during MIS procedures.

Titan is in the enginering verification phase of the SPORT™ Surgical System.

Global annual medical robotic revenues are currently approximately $4 billion and are expected to grow to $18 BILLION in 2018. Titan is planning to first commercialize the SPORT™ Surgical System in Europe followed by the United States, the world’s two largest markets for robotic surgery.  Currently, the robotic surgery marketplace is dominated by Intuitive Surgical.  This will likely change soon as their patents begin to expire and more competition is welcomed in an effort to lower costs and improve patient satisfaction.
