Press release – Innovative partnership between Clinique Saint-Augustin, SurgAR, Medexprim – Augmented reality for laparoscopic surgery

Clinique Saint Augustin in Bordeaux, France, SurgAR and Medexprim are proud to announce a 4-year strategic partnership to accelerate the development of SurgAR’s augmented reality software dedicated to robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy.  

A member of the Elsan group and leader in private hospitalization in France, the Saint Augustin Clinic in Bordeaux has 111 practitioners, including a team of 9 surgeons specializing in urology.

This three-way partnership will allow the constitution of a database of surgical videos to develop Artificial Intelligence tools for the detection and segmentation of the kidney and related anatomical markers. It is a further step in the development of innovative solutions for research and patient well-being.

SurgAR and Medexprim will continue to develop this model with their network of European hospitals, whether they are existing partners of Medexprim or SurgAR. Over the next three years, the solution proposed by the partners will be deployed on 12 sites in France and Europe.
