Our Mission

At Biobot Surgical, our mission is to revolutionize the realm of robotic-assisted biopsy and treatment for prostate cancer.

As the landscape for prostate cancer treatment evolves, we aren’t just riding this wave of change — we’re propelling it, ushering in a new era of excellence in prostate disease management. At the forefront of these advances in the standard of care in prostate cancer management, we are poised to address the global unmet need for a precision percutaneous approach to transperineal procedures — and make a monumental impact on the lives of patients.

Our Story

Biobot Surgical is the first surgical robotics venture to emerge from Singapore’s dynamic academic and clinical ecosystem. We now operate as a subsidiary of ZIG Ventures, a venture-builder with a keen focus on medical devices. Throughout the years, we have remained committed to pioneering advancements in prostate healthcare.

Our impact is being felt worldwide. Together with urologists we have already completed over 23,000 procedures globally, a milestone we are incredibly proud of.*

Global Reach

Biobot Surgical is proud to collaborate with urologists, hospitals and centres of excellence worldwide to bring cutting-edge technology to the forefront and shape the future of prostate technology on a global scale.

As part of our global expansion, Mona Lisa has been successfully introduced to surgeons in the US, China, Australia, Europe and Asia Pacific.
