Advantages of the device


ROSA® acts as a kind of “GPS” for the skull, and may be used for all types of cranial intervention requiring surgical planning based on pre-operative data, precise location of the patient’s anatomy and accurate positioning and handling of instruments.
The device assists the surgeon with a wide variety of medical indications and surgical interventions such as biopsies, electrode implantation for functional procedures (stimulation of the cerebral cortex, deep brain stimulation), open skull surgical procedures requiring a navigation device, endoscopic interventions and any other “key-hole” procedures.


With our robotic device for neurosurgical procedures it is possible to :

  • Simplify surgical procedures by doing away with a stereotactic frame or other landmarks fixed to the patient’s head
  • Improve the patient’s well-being  by means of less invasive interventions
  • Facilitate accessibility to the patient’s head: the robot arm’s six axes offer greater freedom of movement
  • Optimize the precision of instrument guidance thanks to the robot arm’s dexterity
  • Give the surgeon better perception of the surgical field with the help of real-time instrument tracking on pre-operative images, and haptic capacities
  • Increase the safety of surgical procedures thanks to the precision and repeatability of ROSA®’s proprietary robotic technology
  • Reduce the operating time thanks to the system’s ease of use
  • Cover a very wide spectrum of indications for neurosurgery

Clinical benefits


The ROSA® robot is fully involved in establishing minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques and improves the whole experience of surgery. It is a source of extra benefits for the patient, the surgeon and the health facility.
