Robotics Division

HealthSource Elite has a team of specialized recruiters who focus exclusively on Surgeons, Hospitals, and IDN Health Systems who offer Robotic Surgery to their patients and communities. The Robotic Surgeons we work with offer Robotic surgery in the following specialties:

  • General Surgery
  • Thoracic
  • Colon & Rectal
  • Urology
  • Gynecology
  • Orthopaedic
  • Spine
  • Neuro
  • And more…

As more and more Surgeons and Hospitals continue to adopt and specialize in Robotic surgery, the need for specialized recruiters who work exclusively in this space will be significant. Medical Schools now have well established Robotic Fellowship programs where surgeons are being trained on Robotic Surgery before accepting their first physician job. These future Surgeons of America will graduate seeking jobs where they can offer Robotic surgery in their practice. As these trained Surgeon numbers continue to grow, so will the need for experienced recruiters who understand this space.

At HealthSource Elite we are proud to be at the forefront of this market segment. We have Hospitals and IDN Health Systems partners who are primary focused on recruiting Surgeons and Fellows who have a track record of excellent patient outcomes in this area of surgery. If you are a Robotic Surgeon looking to join a well established Robotics program, we can help you. If you are a Hospital Executive or IDN Health System Executive looking to recruit an experienced Robotic Surgeon, we can deliver.


Robotic Surgery Overview

The last 20 years have seen a paradigm shift in minimally invasive surgery with the introduction and adoption of robotic surgery. The robotic landscape has been dominated by the Davinci surgical system manufactured and sold by Intuitive Surgical. There are now over 6000 Davinci systems in operation that have performed 8.5 million procedures worldwide. The Davinci install base has seen historical annual growth rates of around 12%. Globally, the largest proportion of robotic surgery occurs in General Surgery. The global robotic surgery services market grew from $0.73 billion in 2021 to $0.86 billion in 2022. The robotic surgery services market is expected to grow to $1.59 billion by 2026. New competitors in the space continue to emerge as they attempt to enter this market. Medical and technology firms including Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, and CMR Surgical are among the few.

In urological oncology, where robotic procedures have rapidly become the standard of care, surgery has been revolutionized. In 2019, 92% of radical prostatectomies in the US were performed with robotic assistance. Rapid adoption of robotics has led to Medical Schools having specialized robotic Fellowships in various specialties to help Fellows learn how to utilize this technology so they are coming out trained in the most advanced surgical approaches.

Image guide navigation systems combined with a robotic surgery system offers more possibility to visualize and perform the minimally invasive surgery in areas which were earlier difficult, especially the orthopaedic and neuro surgeries. The Mazor X Stealth system by Medtronic and the NuVasive’s Pulse and Excelsius GPS by Globus Medical us navigation systems to perform spine surgeries and orthopaedic implant surgeries such as total, partial knee, and hip replacements.

Avatera Medical becomes the newest robotic surgery group in Europe

Intuitive Surgical’s status as the sole provider of large robotic surgery machines are coming to a close. Medtronic and Verb Surgical are gearing up to launch their systems in the coming year – but smaller companies are starting to make headway here too. German start-up Avatera Medical is the latest to get European approval, and is pleased not to be the only company with Intuitive in its sights… Read more

These surgeons are among the first to adopt the latest approach to robotic surgery. Here’s what they’ve learned. This story was created in partnership with Intuitive.
