Surgical Innovations' resposable instrumentation reduces cost of
9 Nov 2010
Leeds-based Surgical Innovations is raising the profile of its
pioneering resposable instrumentation for laparoscopic surgery at MEDICA
2010 this month.
Resposable instrumentation combines both disposable and reusable
components, and can save hospitals thousands of pounds each year.
It enables surgeons to benefit from the optimum performance of a
disposable instrument, with the cost effectiveness of a reusable
one. Laparoscopic instrumentation is usually dominated by expensive
‘throw away’ parts, so Surgical Innovations' solution is satisfying
both surgeons and procurement managers around the world.
Among the products that Surgical Innovations will showcase
at MEDICA will be their award-winning YelloPort+plus — a resposable
laparoscopic port system that gives access into the body allowing
surgeons to carry out delicate keyhole procedures.
The device was recently honoured by Queen Elizabeth II for its
technical and clinical excellence and the impact it has had on
surgeons and patients around the world.
Also on display will be the LogiRange, of hand instruments which
combine reusable ergonomic handles — to ensure surgeons have
accurate tactile feel and control — combined with single-use
scissors and jaws for excellent performance and infection control.
All the products have been designed specifically to empower
surgeons in laparoscopic procedures and provide patients with an
improved quality of life.
Graham Bowland, Chief Executive Officer at Surgical Innovations,
said: “MEDICA is a platform for innovation and we are pleased to be
able to showcase our pioneering Resposable instruments at the show.”
“MEDICA is an exciting exhibition for Surgical Innovations as it
allows us to meet with both current and potential worldwide
distributors and offers the perfect platform for us to provide
updates on our new technologies and products.”
MEDICA 2010 will take place between 17 – 20th November 2010 at
the Messe Düsseldorf, Germany. At the show Surgical Innovations will
be located on the UK Pavilion in hall 16, stand G10.
