Coral Springs, FL (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
New Wave Surgical Corp., recently named one of Inc. 500’s fastest growing companies, is helping more surgical teams worldwide by placing its signature laparoscopic cleaning/defogging device in 300 additional hospitals since the beginning of 2012, increasing its hospital base by 60 percent.
D-H.E.L.P ™, New Wave Surgical’s flagship product, was developed five years ago and is now being used in more than 800 hospitals around the world.
Despite advancements in optics, fogging and laparoscope lens-cleaning remained a frustration for surgeons, until D-H.E.L.P. When scopes get fogged and soiled from body tissue and fluids, the operating room time is extended, increasing procedure costs and patient risks. Now, more surgeons across the world have discovered the Advanced Laparoscopic Care Kit with D-H.E.L.P ™, giving surgeons, nurses and surgical techs clear visualization throughout the entire surgical or robotic procedure--in essence decreasing operating room time and the amount of anesthesia used in each case.
“I have been doing laparoscopy since 1990, and I have to say that D-H.E.L.P is the first effective innovation that reliably eliminates fogging in a cost-effective manner,” said Dr. Michael Nussbaum of Shands Jacksonville Medical Center. “It really helps me see clearly throughout the entire operation so I can get in and get out quickly.”
“We are excited about the broad acceptance of D-H.E.L.P,” said Matt Sokany, vice president of sales and marketing at New Wave Surgical. “Our success confirms the clinical and economic value our system delivers to surgeons and their operating room staff.”
In addition to working on other innovative products, New Wave Surgical is expanding its global business in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
