In this episode, we learn about Intuitive’s OTHER ground-breaking robot, the ION endoluminal system. This episode is sponsored by Maxon Group.

ION allows for robot-assisted bronchoscopic procedures such as biopsies in the hardest to reach areas of the lung. The FDA cleared the ION system in 2019.

We speak with Charlie Dean, vice president and general manager of the endoluminal business unit at Intuitive, an engineer who has spent his career working to make smaller, more effective minimally invasive tools.

We also talk with Oliver Wagner, MD, vice president and medical officer of the endoluminal division. Wagner explains how his long-time pursuit of NOTES led him to join Intuitive. He also sees a future where ION can serve as a platform for many other devices.
