Robot technology now goes beyond the realm of industry and affects our daily lives.
Although I have studied robotics as a professor for over 30 years, conducted a lot of research,and registered patents with my students, at the bottom of my heart I have always dreamed of developingsomething that would provide real help to people, thus contributing to making this world a better place.EndoRobotics is the product of the passion and dreams of many professors, including myself, and Ph.D. students in the associated industry.Rather than simply developing robots to garner attention and increase the value of technology,we are committed to developing practical products and services needed for medical staff and patients around the world.

Without a doubt, this process requires advanced technology,and EndoRobotics prides itself on possessing high technological prowess in this field. Until the day our dream becomes a reality,all members of EndoRobotics, including myself, will continue our quest to reach new heights.

EndoRobotics has been established based on the long-standing research outcomes of the best mechanical engineers and gastroenterologists in Korea.Despite the growing interest and need for endoscopic non-invasive surgery worldwide, the development of medical devices for internal medicine teams, the main entities of surgery, still lags far behind. This is because of the higher barrier to technological development than in the field of surgical and medical devices which primarily focus on laparoscopy, which is operated intuitively. We have anticipated these issues and needs in the medical field, and along with the development of source proprietary technologies, As more and more non-invasive medical activities involving endoscopes are being carried out, our technologies and products will be rapidly adopted in the medical field. we remain committed to building innovative and practical surgical robots, and medical devices for the staff of internal medicine.

EndoRobotics will continue to expand the horizon of internal medicine, which had primarily played an active role in diagnostics, to be applied to treatment for many patients to enjoy the benefits of non-invasive surgery around the world. We look forward to the help and participation of many specialized institutions and talented personnel who are willing to share our dreams.
