TOUSS was designed in order to offer a minimally invasive surgery approach from the very beginning. It is based in the use of the endoscopic tool in a transoral fashion (that is, through the mouth) targeted to the head and neck pathology, both malign and benign. This way the patient will avoid the big physical consequences that are the usual aftermath of a classic open surgery. Up until the appearance of this technique, a transoral endoscopic surgery was only possible to do with a robotic platform, inaccessible to the vast majority of medical institutions worldwide.
TOUSS has become a surgical alternative to the robotic surgery, in the same cases the latter is applied. This is done with materials and technology accessible to most hospitals. The TOUSS philosophy consists on placing a bet in the development of minimally invasive surgery without the costs of a robot. This way this procedure is universalized for patients from different income backgrounds, making it more egalitarian.
The two key words that describe this project are: minimally invasive surgery and accessibility. Those are the concepts we like to promote: making it as universal as possible due to accessibility and offering a modern, high-quality, minimally invasive surgery.
