A new medical company will introduce robotic surgery in Guyana

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Salus Medical Inc., a local medical distribution company, has announced plans to introduce robot-assisted surgery to Guyana’s healthcare industry – a first for the region.

At its official launch on Friday, company officials said they have already signed agreements with leading, cutting-edge medical brands to advance and modernize healthcare.

One of the companies on board is Brainlabs; which uses software technology such as x-ray vision to diagnose patients and navigate surgeries using a digital replica of the patient’s organs, muscles and tissues. This helps reduce blindness or paralysis during complex procedures.
