What’s missing from your IPO industry assessment?

IPO activity all but stopped in 2020, as the investment community grew wary of the effects of COVID-19 on economies. No matter how deserving a business was of flotation, momentum was halted by concerns of when a ‘new normal’ of working patterns and trade would set in. Recently, sentiment has changed. Flotations picked up again during the second half of 2021, and now in 2022 the mood is decidedly optimistic. Business leaders have their eyes on fast rebounding economies, buoyant market indices and the opportunity once again to take their businesses public. As a result, global IPOs are expected to hit back this year.

The Da Vinci Surgery robots have been procured to increase robotic-assisted surgeries being conducted at the NNUH.

The advanced technology assists surgeons with more precision, accuracy and smaller incisions while lowering the amount of time patients spend in hospital.

According to NNUH, the new robots will replace an existing model that has been in use at the hospital for urological surgery for the past four years.

One of the two Da Vinci Surgery robots has already been put to use by the Urology team last week while the second unit will be deployed in September this year.

The robots will be used for complex surgeries and procedures such as urology, colorectal, gynaecology, thoracic and head and neck.

NNUH Consultant Urological Surgeon Vivekanandan Kumar said: “This new robot is sleeker and more versatile with added features compared to the one we have used and it makes a huge difference to our theatre capacity.

“Robotic surgery also offers far greater accuracy when removing a tumour, which means better outcomes for our patients.

“A number of surgical procedures require an amount of stitching and plumbing work inside the patient which is quite challenging. With a robot the patient is left with very, very small scars which is a marker of the very good services we are providing.”
