TransEnterix introduces its SPIDER™ Surgical System. With the new medical device, the company looks to a new category of minimally invasive surgery called flexible laparoscopy that incorporates the hands-on dexterity of open surgery with flexible instrumentation of endovascular surgery and the skills and procedures of traditional laparoscopic skills and procedures. According to the company, the SPIDER™ Surgical System is a minimally invasive surgical platform that:
- Includes flexible instrumentation.
- Allows surgeons to perform a wide variety of procedures using both TransEnterix and other off-the-shelf technologies.
- Was developed with a single incision in mind but has the ability to be used for other advanced procedures than initially conceived.
- Has the ability to perform less invasively with flexible laparoscopy.
