Company Summary

SSS makes and sells the RoSS, which allows surgeons to safely learn the basics of robotic surgery. Training is independent of the Operating Room thus allowing the hospital to continue performing billable procedures while conducting training. Our customers include major surgical teaching institutions in the USA and Europe. Our technology is protected by numerous patents on both the hardware and software.
