“Autonomy™ Laparo-Angle™ enables development of “scar-less” surgeries, and the single port laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is a great example of this enabling power. These devices make single-port surgery viable, even in the most complex cases. Making sacrocolpopexy and other similar procedures less invasive and virtually scar-less is a great benefit to patients.”
