TiRobot&JNJ Viper PrimeTM Integrated Surgery Treatment was officially approved
After nearly 2 years of unremitting exploration and innovation, TiRobot&JNJ Viper PrimeTM Integrated Surgery Treatment jointly developed by TINAVI and JNJ was officially approved at the end of November. In addition, more than 10 surgeries assisted by this treatment was carried out in Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University, Fujian Provincial Hospital, The Hospital of Putian College, etc. in less than 2 weeks, which was broadcast live in an annual program of spinal surgery.
Building up a training platform for doctors
In 2021, TINAVI has continued to carry out training courses of robotic surgery skills, providing more opportunities for orthopedic doctors to learn and improve their clinical skills.TINAVI cooperated with JNJ for the third time and signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Tianjin Hospital, Fujian Provincial Hospital and Jiangsu Provincial Hospital. TINAVI provided training courses of robotic surgery skills for their partners and popularized the advanced techniques and application experience of TiRobot-assisted spine surgery for surgeons all over the province and the country, in this way to bring benefits to more patients with spinal diseases；
In July and December, TINAVI jointly established robot application training centers with the The First Hospital of Anhui Medical University and The First Hospital of China Medical University. At the ceremony, many experts in this field introduced the clinical application of TiRobot in spine, trauma, limbs, etc. and presented a wonderful academic feast for the audience online；
In December, TINAVI established a platform of online training courses called ‘Tianji College’. It is an academic exchange platform for doctors on clinical application of TiRobot. Doctors can improve their skills of intelligent orthopedics through this platform and benefit patients then. The platform aims at providing one-stop training courses of TiRobot for doctors and the learning materials on it can be viewed repeatedly through ‘live’ and ‘playback’ button.

TiRobot is able to complete innovative surgeries with integrated piezosurgery and high-speed abrasive drilling system.
In September 2021, three cases of thoracic ligament olf ossification resection assisted by TiRobot&Piezosurgery Integrated System were successfully completed by the medical group led by Yuan Qiang from Beijing Jishuitan Hospital. With 3D imaging planning, TiRobot-Piezosurgery Integrated System made it possible for precise and active osteotomy with piezosurgery for complex shapes. These successful cases have filled the gap of robot-assisted spinal cutting and abrasion surgery in the world.
