Surgeon investors representing our group met with Titan Medical’s executive team and operated an advanced prototype SPORT Surgical System. We collectively share tremendous excitement for the potential clinical benefits of the multi-articulating, single-incision technology, and the company’s strategic plans for commercialization. Initial trials conducted at Florida Hospital Nicholson Center have contributed to our group’s growing enthusiasm for the SPORT system.
