What is HoST?

  • HoST (Hands-on Surgical Training) is a ground-breaking new technology developed for learning robot-assisted surgical procedures. It is only available on the RoSS™. With the use of haptics, the RoSS's™ HoST system guides the user's hands through the operative steps of a real procedure, prompting the user to interact with the machine.
  • HoST uses the principles of checklist-based learning, meaning the user can only proceed through the procedure after successfully learning and executing each step. User performance metrics are recorded so that progress can be tracked.

Available Procedures


Radical Prostatectomy

Radical Hysterectomy

Radical Cystectomy

Lymph Node Dissection
