French institute completes inaugural robotics surgeries with Moon Surgical system

The Arnault Tzanck Institute and Moon Surgical, a French-American pioneer in collaborative robotics, announced the successful completion of the first ten laparoscopic surgeries leveraging a new, commercially-ready Maestro System in Nice, France.

The weight loss (bariatric) and abdominal surgery procedures were performed by Dr Benjamin Cadière and Dr Georges Debs, both laparoscopic surgeons, and mark the expansion of the hospital’s bariatric practice, which aims to provide integrated care to patients at its new Clinique du Poids Idéale – a one-stop shop for weight loss.
