HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 24, 2012-- Quantum International Corp.
(OTCBB: QUAN) announced today that the company is targeting incredible new advances in robotics that are changing the way doctors treat some cancers.
Many forms of the disease, including gynecologic cancers, can be extremely difficult to diagnose and treat without large incisions with long recovery times. New robotic tools are helping to make the process far less invasive.
Small robotic tools can translate a surgeon's movements into miniscule motion. Instead of a large incision of traditional abdominal surgery, those facing a diagnosis of gynecological cancer need only a few tiny incisions, the size of a large pencil-just enough room for the arms of a remote-controlled robot, instead of the surgeon's actual hands, to find and remove possible cancer from the uterus, cervix or ovaries.
Instead of debilitating pain and significant recovery time, patients need only an overnight stay and Ibuprofen. Outcomes of these surgeries can be improved, as well.
Doctors are seeing such positive results in cancer patients that many expect the future of all such surgeries to be done this less-invasive way. Quantum International is working to help bring more robotics innovations to the market capable of improving healthcare worldwide.
As of 2010, only 1,752 robotic surgical systems have been installed globally. QUAN's aggressive new initiative could lead to more advancements in this sector, as surgeons seek out newer, more affordable ways to perform complex medical procedures. As more and more advanced and impressive surgical robots are developed, the market for these devices could be set to explode.
The company plans to announce its initial business targets in the red-hot robotics space soon. For more information on Quantum International's robotics initiatives, please visit http://www.quantuminternationalcorp.com/investors.html.
