As per the agreement, Apollo will test and evaluate Titan Medical's Amadeus next-generation robotic surgical technologies.

Amadeus Composer, a surgical system under development, allows surgeons to overcome the constraints of surgical procedures in small to medium spaces.

Amadeus Maestro, a next-generation four-armed robotic surgical system, utilises the Titan True Touch technology to target surgical procedures in large spaces.

Apollo Hospitals Group chairman Prathap Reddy said robotic surgery offers exciting developments in thoracic, abdominal and pelvic surgery.

''We look forward to offering these robotic procedures to our patients to help combat cardiac disease, as well as prostate and uterine cancer," he added.
