Herlev Hospital's adoption of the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System is yet another example of how they continually look for technologies that can help their physicians provide the best care possible to their patients
Herlev, Denmark (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
ProPep Surgical, LLC, a privately-held, Austin-based medical device company and LE Medical ApS, a privately-held, Roskilde (Denmark)-based medical equipment distributor announced today the prestigious Herlev Hospital (Herlev, Denmark) is the first hospital in Europe to acquire the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System.
The ProPep Nerve Monitoring System is the first, real-time nerve monitoring system specifically designed for use during robotic-assisted, pelvic surgery. Fast, accurate and easy to use, the System aids surgeons in identifying and monitoring otherwise invisible nerves during minimally invasive, robotic-assisted, pelvic surgery. “LE Medical is excited to be working with the staff at Herlev Hospital to introduce this cutting edge, nerve monitoring technology into their robotic surgical procedures,” said Erik Jensen, General Manager of LE Medical ApS.
“Herlev Hospital has the largest department of urology in Northern Europe and is one of the most technically advanced hospitals in Denmark. Their adoption of the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System is yet another example of how they continually look for technologies that can help their physicians provide the best care possible to their patients. By providing robotic surgeons instantaneous feedback as to the location and functional integrity of critical pelvic nerves throughout robotic-assisted, surgical procedures, the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System can potentially help surgeons avoid inadvertent damage to these nerves and in so doing, potentially reduce the side effects, such as urinary incontinence, typically attributed to this nerve damage.”
About ProPep Surgical, LLC
Established in 2010, ProPep Surgical is a privately-held, Austin-based medical device company developing a system of products (ProPep Nerve Monitoring System) to aid robotic surgeons in identifying and monitoring otherwise invisible pelvic nerves during minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery. The ProPep Nerve Monitoring System allows surgeons to identify the location of and monitor the integrity of nerves in real time throughout robotic-assisted, surgical procedures. This information helps surgeons make more informed decision about which tissue to selectively preserve or remove during surgery and as a result, potentially reduce the common side effects typically attributed to inadvertent damage of these critical nerves.
