Great news from ACHA recently, regarding their acquisition of the Medrobotics Flex® Robotic System!

A/Prof Eng Ooi is fully trained in the use of this innovative system for Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery (TORS), used for the treatment of patients with tonsil and throat cancer, snoring and OSA.


Flinders Private Hospital is proud to share our newest robotic acquisition and is the first private hospital in Australia with the Medrobotics Flex® Robotic System for Colorectal Surgery.

Medrobotics expanded the use of the Flex® Robotic system to provide robot-assisted control of the Flex® Colorectal Drive during visualisation and surgical site access to the anus, rectum and distal colon.

The Flex® Robotic System is also used by Otorhinolaryngologists to treat benign and malignant disease of the oropharynx and larynx, as well as sleep apnoea surgery. The Flex® Robotic System gives Surgeons the ability to access anatomical locations that were previously difficult or impossible to reach minimally invasively.

Please contact Ms Mandy Burnett (Business Manager) at for further information about the robot and other Otorhinolaryngology and Colorectal Surgery services at Flinders Private Hospital.
