On 06 September 2022, H.E. Cecilia Attard-Pirotta, Ambassador of the Republic of Malta to the State of Israel, visited the premises of Pathkeeper Surgical in Kfar Saba, Israel. The Ambassador was welcomed by Dr. Opher Kinrot, Chief Technical Officer at Pathkeeper Surgical.

The Ambassador was briefed on the 3D navigational technology being developed by the company, namely, in the field of spine-surgery and other orthopaedic surgery that offer continuous anatomical tracking to surgeons during medical interventions. During the visit, Ambassador Attard-Pirotta was able to receive a first-hand demonstration of these technologies as well as to discuss the future of medical technology with experts at the firm. In 2020, Pathkeeper was chosen as the Horizon 2020 EU grant winner of 2.5 million Euro for its Optics MISS (minimally invasive spine surgery) project. The project was partially funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020.

Pathkeeper Surgical, in collaboration with Malta Enterprise, will be developing in Malta a robotic arm that will further enhance the accuracy and efficiency of spinal surgeries.
