GYNECOLOGICAL ASC THERAPIES & PROCEDURES

WHAT WE OFFER

YOUR PARTNER IN Gynecology & Women's HEALTH

Let’s work together to do better for women, by providing the less invasive procedures they deserve.

Women’s health is a growing priority in the healthcare industry — and for good reason. Women face unique and complex health issues that require tailored services and solutions in whatever care setting they visit.

See below for a collection of our offering for the Ambulatory Surgery Center setting, including:

HYSTEROSCOPY

Hysteroscopy is the gold standard for allowing providers to look directly into the uterus and determine if symptoms (such as abnormal uterine bleeding) are related to fibroids, polyps, retained products of conception or intrauterine adhesions.1 Hysteroscopy can also allow for treatment of these pathologies under direct visualization.

TRUCLEAR™ SYSTEM — A TOTAL HYSTEROSCOPY SYSTEM

See and treat in the same procedure with the only operative hysteroscopic system that provides optimized visibility and tissue-specific instrumentation. The TruClear™ system consists of:

TruClear™ Elite Hysteroscopes

Truclear

TruClear™ Tissue Shavers (for soft and dense tissue)

Truclear Shavers

HysteroLux™ Fluid Management System

Hysterolux

TOTAL LAPAROSCOPIC HYSTERECTOMY 

An estimated 20 million US women have had a hysterectomy; more than one-third of all women have had a hysterectomy by age 60.2

  • Approximately 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States2
  • Clinical and economic advantages of minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures versus open
    • ~60% still performed as open procedures3,4
    • < surgical site infection4
    • Similar readmission rates5
    • < length of stay6-10
    • Similar proportion of patients requiring a blood transfusion4,9,11
