Titan Medical SPORT Surgical System
Surgeon Feedback From Initial Clinical Testing:

Ricardo Estape, M.D., a robotic gynecologic oncology surgeon from South Miami Gynecology Oncology Group who specializes in robotic single port surgeries, said, “The SPORT Surgical System performed beyond my expectations and I was able to complete a variety of critical surgical tasks with the necessary dexterity and precision through a single incision. The robotic instruments provided the necessary articulation, range of motion and rigidity along with 3D high-definition video on the flat panel monitor that allowed me to complete the surgery in a comfortable posture. This could be a game changer in gynecological surgery.”  SEE VIDEO

Eduardo Parra-Davila, M.D., a robotic colorectal surgeon at Florida Hospital who has trained thousands of surgeons worldwide on robotic surgery, commented, “Single port surgery without robotic assistance is not easy and yet it remains highly beneficial because of the desire to have fewer ports. It’s all about robotic articulation delivered through a single incision that allows for the reach, necessary angles and multi-quadrant access to treat diseases in colorectal surgeries. The SPORT Surgical System has the promise to become a valuable tool for all robotic surgeons looking to do single port surgery in the future.”    SEE VIDEO

Arnold Advincula, M.D., Chief of Gynecologic Specialty Surgery at Columbia University and an expert in robotic surgery, said, “After using the SPORT system, I am more convinced that single-port robotic surgery could become a reality for many patients. Previous approaches to single-incision surgery have been limiting and ineffective. The SPORT system demonstrated that it can not only address those limitations, but it may also provide some unique capabilities for enabling a variety of gynecologic surgeries through a single incision. The future of single-port robotic surgery is bright and I am excited to actively participate in this journey with Titan Medical.”

Vipul Patel, M.D., a world-renowned robotic urology surgeon from the Global Robotics Institute at Florida Hospital and the only surgeon in the world to have completed 10,000 robotic prostatectomies, said, “Although multi-port robotic prostatectomy is currently the standard of care in urology, single port robotic surgery could be the next frontier in urology and other surgical disciplines. It was exciting for me to use Titan Medical’s SPORT system at Florida Hospital Nicholson Center. The technological capabilities of the SPORT system are very encouraging and the early success in establishing feasibility is an important step in the right direction.”

William Burke, M.D., a gynecologic oncologist at Stony Brook University Hospital with extensive robotic surgery experience, commented, “Having completed thousands of multi-port robotic surgeries over several years of practice, I was pleased with the capabilities of the SPORT system that eased my transition from a multi-port approach to single-port robotic surgery. The workspace, access and ease of use while maintaining critical multi-port robotic features such as multi-articulated instruments and high-definition 3D visualization through a single incision, are important factors in transitioning from multi-port to single-port robotic surgery. I must say that the SPORT system, with its sophistication, makes a highly compelling case for single-port robotic surgery.”

Lee Swanstrom, MD, FACS, Chief Innovation Officer of IHU Strasbourg, said, “I was pleased with my first experience with the SPORT system for applications in abdominal procedures. There are many patients undergoing general surgical procedures who could greatly benefit from a reduced number of incisions. Single-port robotic surgery can be a truly enabling solution for patients and surgeons alike, and it is exciting to see that the SPORT system takes us much closer to that possibility.”

Jelle Ruurda, MD, a gastrointestinal and oncologic surgeon at University Medical Center Utrecht, who has several years of robotic surgery experience, commented, “Many oncologic general surgery procedures require specimen retrieval at the end of the procedure. These procedures are natural applications for single-port robotic surgery. My first operation of the SPORT system in a preclinical environment was very exciting, and the system shows great promise for future clinical use. I look forward to the opportunity to work together with Titan Medical to evolve a single-port robotic surgery option for my oncology patients. Based on this first experience, I am confident that single-port robotic surgery has a bright future”.

Eric Barret, MD, a world-renowned robotic urologic surgeon at Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, said, “Having performed many single-incision robotic surgeries with flexible, non-wristed and crossed-over instruments, my first experience with the SPORT system was exceptional. The SPORT system addresses many limitations of previous laparoscopic and robotic single-incision surgery approaches, and holds significant promise for meaningful use in urologic applications.”

A robotic system like no other!

The SPORT Surgical System is a versatile single incision advanced robotic surgical system that features state-of the-art multi-articulated instruments with single-use replaceable tips, 3D high definition visualization on a flat-screen monitor, ergonomic open workstation and a single-arm mobile patient cart for ease of set up while enabling broad applications of single and multi-quadrant surgeries previously not possible with current robotic solutions.

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 2019. 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.
