■Tottori University Hospital
Tottori University Hospital is located in Yonago city in Tottori prefecture.
This university hospital is a successor of the former Yonago Medical College which was established in 1893 (Meiji Y26). So people still refer to the school as the ‘Medical College’.
The hospital introduced ‘Da Vinci System’ in 2010 as the first adopter in the area.
With that magnificent start, the hospital has been the evangelist for utilizing medical robots like ‘Da Vinci ‘ which can track surgery performances and operating intelligence.
Tottori municipality and Yonago’s local government have been keen on establishing robot development base in the area and thus tmsuk R&D inc. was established.
