Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 6, 2005
NeoSurg Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of minimally invasive access products for laparoscopic surgery, is pleased to announce today that it has been granted a patent relating to its bladeless tip technology. The patent, U.S. No. 6,835,201, titled "Trocar" covers a bladeless tip geometry for the T2000 Reusable Trocar System.
"This unique tip geometry provides for a dorsal element to our existing bladeless tip. We feel this dorsal element will provide additional lateral stability without increasing the penetration force substantially,Â said Pete OÂHeeron, President/CEO of NeoSurg Technologies, Inc. ÂThis patent will provide the market with a unique geometry and advance our efforts to bring advanced technology to the minimally invasive access market while recognizing the need to reduce cost for each procedure.Â
NeoSurg owns patents and has numerous pending patent applications for the minimally invasive access marketÂshowing a strong patent position and commitment to developing clinically sophisticated and cost effective solutions. The objective of the patents is to broaden the intellectual property protection worldwide for the T2000 Technology. Currently, NeoSurg Technology is protected by over 13 patents and patent applications worldwide.
About the T2000 System
The T2000 System consists of a Reusable Trocar constructed of titanium and hard anodized aluminum for durability and reliability. The access tip is disposable which provides the surgeon with a choice of tip geometries. From a consistently sharp and controlled penetration to a bladeless entry, the surgeon can choose their geometry without changing the entire instrument. A locking shielding mechanism is attached to the main trocar to guard the tip during insertion.
