Bertin Nahum (Medtech) : « Our devices are not going to replace the surgeon »
Bertin Nahum, founder & CEO of Medtech was invited by the French economic newspaper Les Echos on 20th January 2016.
He went back to the start of his company Medtech , founded in 2009, which is specialised in robotic assistance dedicated to improve surgical techniques.
The sector of medical technologies is a fast growing market which will generate 20 billion dollars of revenue by 2020. Currently, there are not many actors positionned on this market and Medtech is already an important player.
According the last figures realeased, Medtech has more than doubled its business in one year, + 135% Compared with 2014.
Since its IPO on Euronext two years ago, Medtech regularly published very good results, between +100% and +150% per year.
Medtech has benefited from a great support from the French public authorities throughout its development and is deeply settled in Montpellier. However, Medtech is not only focused on the French market, but internationally oriented. For instance, its medical devices are used in more than 60 hospital all over the world (France, USA, China and Middle East). 3000 patients were operated thanks to these technologies. Lately, the FDA has approved a new generation of robots developed by Medtech which are dedicated to the vertebral column surgery.
Medtech is part of the label French Tech.
