A Large Part Of The World Lacks Access To Essential And Safer Surgical Procedures
Access To Minimally Invasive and Safer Surgical Procedures Is Advantageous-particularly in areas where there is often poor sanitation, limited diagnostic imaging, fewer hospital beds, higher rates of hemorrhage and infections, and single-income households – all of which contribute to surgical morbidity and mortality. Today, 5 billion people lack access to safe and essential surgery and the majority are in lower-middle-income countries (LMICs). 9 out of 10 people in low and middle-income countries lack access to safe and affordable surgical care resulting in at least 1.5 million deaths each year and over $12 trillion in lost economic output by the year 2030 through surgical diseases.
Our mission is to improve access to minimally invasive abdominal surgery by eliminating the need for insufflation in resource-limited settings. With our gasless laparoscopy retractor, we’re turning the tables on traditional surgery, empowering surgeons in resource-limited settings to achieve remarkable results without the need for insufflation.
