Extending Robotics into Microsurgery


Our Mission: expand the benefits of minimally invasive surgeries by enabling precise surgical maneuvers through human-machine cooperation

The Galen Platform

Galen is developing a single-platform solution to aid surgeons across several disciplines with minimal disturbance to existing workflows. Our cooperative control paradigm aims to eliminate hand tremor and enable surgeons to realize precise minimally invasive interventions in otolaryngology, spine surgery, and tissue reconstruction that were previously considered beyond human capacity.

Our Story

Galen Robotics was founded in 2016 to commercialize the research done in the Laboratory of Computational Sensing and Robotics of Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Kevin Olds and Dr. Russell Taylor invented the Robotic ENT Microsurgical System (REMS) at JHU to prevent the complications caused by hand tremor in minimally invasive otolaryngological interventions.
