Titan Medical Partners With Florida Hospital Nicholson Center for SPORT Feasibility and Validation Studies

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 10, 2017) - Titan Medical Inc. ("Titan" or the "Company") (TSX: TMD) (OTCQB: TITXF), a medical device company focused on the design, development and commercialization of a robotic surgical system for application in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), announces a collaboration with Florida Hospital Nicholson Center for feasibility and validation studies to support Titan's regulatory application for its SPORT Surgical System. These studies are expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2017 and continue into 2018.

David McNally, President and CEO of Titan Medical, said, "We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Florida Hospital Nicholson Center for continued feasibility and validation studies for the SPORT system. The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center is a world-class, state-of-the-art training and research facility with demonstrated leadership in robotic surgery innovation and training. With an accessible Orlando location, it has one of the country's largest and most experienced medical learning and simulation incubation centers dedicated to advancing next-generation clinical knowledge. Through this strategic alliance, Titan will also benefit from access to many leading multispecialty key opinion leaders and their surgical expertise in fine-tuning the SPORT system during this critical development phase."

"Florida Hospital Nicholson Center is one of three sites contemplated for our validation and feasibility studies. We look forward to engaging the other two sites during the current quarter, with completion of these studies in 2018," added Mr. McNally.

J. Scott Magnuson, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Florida Hospital Nicholson Center, said, "We are excited about helping Titan Medical benefit from the clinical expertise our institution offers in further refining their SPORT surgical system for regulatory submission. Our brand-new, 54,000-square-foot facility is a model for open collaborations to advance practices and standards across the entire spectrum of minimally invasive, laparoscopic, robotic, telemedicine and medical simulation. It is a place where innovators come together to build upon the brilliant work of industry pioneers to achieve breakthroughs that will revolutionize the way we perform surgery.

SPORT™ Surgical System

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.
