1. Cuvis-spine guides pedicle screw insertion and uses a robotic arm to provide safer, more efficient surgery, according to a May 24 news release. It also reduces radiation exposure to patients and medical staff.

2. This is the third license the robot has, and it can be supplied to all countries now.

3. The robot is currently used at Severance Hospital in South Korea and an Australian medical facility. Curexo plans to expand their market to Europe and the U.S.
