CSL is a medical device company developing a platform to enable widespread use of image guided therapy in minimally invasive settings.
Surgeons need a way to perform more accurate, controlled procedures inside the tight confines of the human body. Patients need treatments that will maximize their functional outcomes. To date, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has been limited due to a number of technical hurdles. By eliminating these hurdles, ColdSteel Laser will be the first of its kind to combine image guided techniques, laser instrumentation, and robotic control with MIS.
