THE STARTLING  FIGURES  ABOUT WOMEN'S HEALTH

As 62%1 of women say that they don’t have the time to look after their own health, there’s an increased risk of undiagnosed gynecological conditions becoming more serious. Each year, almost 4 million hysterectomies are performed globally to treat a range of gynecological conditions2, but only 10% of these procedures are absolutely necessary, due to a serious condition or cancer.

These shocking statistics can be addressed by improving patient awareness of symptoms and innovative treatment options,
which may lead to earlier diagnosis and less invasive procedures.

Together it is possible.

IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES TO ENHANCE ACCESS WITH STRONG FOCUS ON
THREE MAIN CHALLENGES:

1. IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES TO ENHANCE ACCESS

Together we can address the need for improved patient awareness and access to optimal treatment through the education of patients and referrers by means of the creation and delivery of information & clinical evidence, and by raising awareness of all the treatment options available.

2. PARTNER WITH HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS TO EXPAND MINIMALLY INVASIVE TREATMENT OPTIONS

Together we can further optimize health outcomes through expert clinical training, leveraging our wide range of innovative technologies for the treatment of gynecological procedures, implementing ERAS protocols and helping to enable providers to develop outpatient services.

3. IMPROVE CLINICAL OUTCOMES AND COST EFFICIENCIES

through education of MIS surgical techniques, both in the OR and ambulatory setting. Reducing the risk of blood loss, and surgical complications, and shortening length of stay.
