Our story

The Elsan story has always been shaped by our ambition to create an efficient and innovative healthcare model. Originally founded by Jérôme Nouzarède and Dr. Michel Bodkier, Elsan was born from the merger between Vedici and Vitalia in November 2015. In June 2017, we entered into a partnership with MédiPôle Partenaires, thus reinforcing our position as the leader in the private hospital sector.

TruBlue Laser

The TruBlue laser is based on advanced technology. It is designed for ENT surgery and, more specifically, for operations on the ear, larynx, nose and oral cavity. 

Innova IGS 520

Imaging to support cardiovascular procedures

Innova IGS 520 is a flat-panel detector system that enables surgeons to see vessels by injecting a product that is visible in radiography. This opacification of vessels, or angiography, makes it possible to locate diseased vascular areas and to carry out vascular repair procedures under visual control.

Focal One

a pioneering treatment for prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men in France. To treat it, Elsan has acquired Focal One – state-of-the art equipment that uses ultrasound emission, offering an innovative alternative to traditional techniques (surgery or radiotherapy). The use of this mobile device has been rolled out throughout France. [...]

Novalis Tx

High-precision cancer treatment

Radiotherapy is a key weapon in the fight against cancer. [...]

Holep Laser

A minimally invasive treatment for prostate adenoma

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in men over 50 years of age. Also known as prostate adenoma, BPH is characterised by an enlarged prostate gland that compresses the urethra channel carrying urine. This causes many patients to feel uncomfortable emptying their bladder or to have frequent urges to urinate. [...]

PET Scan

Ultra-precise cancer detection

A PET scan – state-of-the-art medical imaging technology – makes the early and accurate diagnosis of cancer possible. [...]

Koelis platform

Accurate detection of prostate cancer

Prostate cancer affects more than 71,000 men per year. To confirm a diagnosis, samples of tissues from the suspect site are removed during a specific examination and sent for testing. These are known as biopsies. Each year, between 100,000 and 150,000 prostate biopsies are performed.

Hyperbaric oxygen chamber sessions

An innovative technique for faster healing

Oxygen carried in the blood is essential for the healing process of tissues. The more oxygen is present in significant quantities, the better the functional recovery and regeneration of these tissues. This is why it’s beneficial to increase the quantity of oxygen dissolved in blood plasma for treating specific pathologies. [...]

TrueBeam

Advanced cancer care

Delivering the correct dosage of beams to the right area is central to treating cancer through radiotherapy. [...]

Virtual Reality headsets

for stress relief

Imagine the most soothing of landscapes – a sandy beach in the Philippines, for example, where the sun shines and you allow yourself to be rocked by the gentle ebb and flow of the waves. Soft, relaxing background music provides the soundtrack to this idyllic picture. Yet this most realistic of scenes is virtual. [...]

4K laparoscopes

Unparalleled image quality for safer operations

Ultra High Definition is making its way into operating theatres. Thanks to 4K-Ultra HD laparoscopes, surgeons practicing in Elsan facilities can benefit from unprecedented image quality.

Cyberknife

Yltra-precise treatment of tumours

CyberKnife is a radiosurgery system also known as high-precision robotic stereotactic radiotherapy. [...]

Da Vinci robotic surgery

A technological revolution that enhances the healing experience

The da Vinci robot is a high-tech device capable of responding in real time to the surgeon’s hand movements. With four articulated arms, da Vinci alone embodies the robotic surgery promise, offering surgeons greater dexterity and precision in performing procedures. This minimally invasive approach allows the patient to recover more quickly. [...]

Greenlight Laser

Advanced technology for prostate adenoma

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in men over 50 years of age. Also known as prostate adenoma, BPH is characterised by an enlarged prostate gland that compresses the urethra channel carrying urine. This causes many patients to feel uncomfortable emptying their bladder or to have frequent urges to urinate. [...]

Dextérité Robot

For safer and more precise surgical procedures

The great advantage of laparoscopic surgery is that it allows an operation to be carried out without opening up the abdominal cavity, using only small incisions through which the instruments are inserted. [...]
