Science First: Surgery Robotics

Nov 15 2016

Surgical robotics has attracted considerable media attention in recent years and Intuitive Surgical, maker of the only commercialized robotic general surgical platform, has experienced remarkable growth. Nevertheless, robotics accounts for less than 10% of the total number of general surgical procedures performed annually. A number of large healthcare corporations are now looking to get into the game. This talk, by Vice President, Sanjeev Dutta, MD MBA FRCSC FACS, Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices, Robotics, MIS, and Oncology, focuses on what forces are at play to account for this industry shift, and makes a case for the true value that robotics provides to the field of surgery.

Johnson & Johnson Innovation Participating Biography:

Sanjeev Dutta, MD MBA | Vice President, Medical Devices, Johnson & Johnson Innovation
Dr. Dutta is Vice President, Medical Devices at Johnson & Johnson Innovation, California. He joins the Medical Science and Technology Team as the Therapeutic Area Expert for Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery. Prior to joining Johnson & Johnson, Dr. Dutta was Associate Professor of Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine and an attending surgeon at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. He has nearly two decades of experience as a healthcare provider and is recognized as a leader in multispecialty minimally invasive surgery, with extensive experience in advanced laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, and robotic procedures. Sanjeev developed a number of “scarless” procedures that together embody a surgical approach called Stealth Surgery. He co-directed an FDA-funded lab (called MISTRAL) in collaboration with the Robotics & Medical Device Division of SRI International that focused on the development of disruptive medical technologies. He has published extensively in the areas of minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, surgical innovation, and surgical education, and is co-inventor on a number of medical device patents. Sanjeev received his MD degree from the University of Calgary in Canada. He trained in Abdominal & Thoracic Surgery at Dalhousie University, followed by fellowship training in Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery at McMaster University, and Neonatal & Pediatric Surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Sanjeev also holds a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Illinois and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
