Company / Profile ImpressumSitemap


AOT AG is a privately owned Swiss Robotic Surgery company, which spun out of the University Hospital and the University Basel (Switzerland) in 2011 and was first funded in 2012.  

The company is dedicated to the development, manufacturing and sales of medical devices for osteotomy pursuing the vision of contact-free bone surgery using laser, robotics and navigation systems to re-invent bone surgery (osteotomy).

The goal

The core technologies mastered by AOT to achieve this goal are:

  • Laser photoablation of tissues: AOT discovered a new, highly efficient mechanism-of-action resulting in “cold” laser photoablation.
  • Navigation, planning and image-guidance for precise robotic surgery for the easy implementation of procedures,
  • Opto-acoustic safety devices for real-time depth-control during photoablation.
