Describes the history of Integrated Surgical Systems (ISS), the US company that created ROBODOC, a surgical robot system used to perform total human hip replacement surgery, and ORTHODOC, a computer workstation that enables orthopaedic surgeons to examine a patient’s bone more accurately and perform a pre‐operative plan prior to total hip replacement (THR) surgery. ISS recently went public on the NASDAQ Small Cap market. ORTHODOC has received US FDA approval, while ROBODOC’s approval is still pending.
