RAYNHAM, Mass., Dec. 20, 2012—Medrobotics Corp., an emerging medical robotics company developing the innovative Flex™ System, announced today the conversion of notes totaling $33.6 Million purchased through recent financings into Series D Preferred Stock.  Existing Medrobotics shareholders and undisclosed new investors participated in the Series D raise.  Proceeds will be used for regulatory preparations and submissions and for anticipated commercial launches next year in Europe and the United States.

“Patients, surgeons, and hospitals will all benefit from the Flex System’s enabling minimally invasive surgical technology,” said Samuel Straface, Ph.D., president and CEO of Medrobotics. “The Flex System will provide transoral single-site access and visualization for surgery in hard-to-reach locations in the throat and voice box. Minimally invasive surgery has been shown to be more cost-effective and less painful for the patient and also leads to quicker hospital discharge and faster recovery.”

The Flex System is anticipated to provide a cost‐effective, robot-assisted surgical platform for hospitals and surgeons eager to expand their offering of minimally invasive treatment options.   In addition to ENT, the platform is being developed for several other single-site access surgical applications with difficult-to-reach anatomies.
