Cambridge Endo launches the Next Generation Autonomy™ Articulating Laparoscopic Instruments at the 2011 Annual Meeting of SAGES
Leader In Reduced Port, Single Port Laparoscopy Achieves Another Milestone
Framingham, MA – March 31, 2011 – Cambridge Endoscopic Devices, Inc., a pioneer in the rapidly emerging Reduced Port and Single Port Laparoscopy (also called Laparo-Endoscopic Single-site Surgery, Single Incision Laparoscopy or Single Port Access surgery) market, is pleased to announce that it is launching the Next Generation Autonomy™ Articulating Laparoscopic Instruments at the 2011 Annual Meeting of Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) in San Antonio, Texas. (Booth # 352, Exhibit Hall C)
“Our Next Generation Autonomy™ Articulating Laparoscopic Instrument line, with significantly streamlined profile, improved ergonomics, performance, cost effective design and over ten different instrument tips, is poised to precisely meet the growing demands of not just Single Port laparoscopy but also of Advanced laparoscopy and Reduced Port laparoscopy, and raise the bar even higher.” said Woojin Lee. Ph.D., President and CEO, Founder of Cambridge Endo.
It has been the Company's fundamental belief that improved access and control offered by its Autonomy™ advanced articulating instruments will fuel the rapid emergence of even less invasive surgeries, and emergence of Reduced Port and “scarless” Single Port laparoscopic surgeries affirms this belief. Single Port laparoscopy has become widely recognized as the first major advance in laparoscopy in 20 years, reducing the number of incisions (often four to six) to one at the umbilicus, and it is expected to become a significant portion of laparoscopy in next several years, according to the recently published Millennium Research Group (MRG) study “The Rise of Single Port Laparoscopy”.
Based on surgeon satisfaction scores, the MRG study finds Cambridge Endo's current generation instruments already to be best-in-class. And, the streamlined profile, improved ergonomics and overall performance improvement of Next Generation Autonomy™ Articulating Laparoscopic Instruments will meet the most demanding challenges of limited access and control surgeons face when performing Reduced Port laparoscopy and Single Port laparoscopy. At the 2011 Annual Meeting of SAGES in San Antonio, Texas, Cambridge Endo is participating in several hands-on Advanced, Reduced Port and Single Port laparoscopy courses where surgeons will be able to experience the Next Generation Autonomy™ Articulating Laparoscopic Instrument line for the first time.
