Laparoscopic surgery or Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is less invasive than open surgery used for the same purpose. MIS typically involves use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device, and is carried out through the skin or through a body cavity or anatomical opening. This may usually result in shorter hospital stays, or allow outpatient treatment.
MediConcepts design and manufacture components and complete MIS medical devices including:
Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery
Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) or incissionless surgery is a surgical technique whereby “scarless” abdominal operations can be performed with an endoscope passed through a natural orifice (mouth, urethra, anus, etc.) then through an internal incision in the stomach, vagina, bladder or colon, thus avoiding any external incisions or scars
MediConcepts manufactures components used on NOTES such as:
Prominent Ears (or Bat Ears) creates psychological distress to children (or adults). MediConcepts is engaged in the design and manufacturing of an ear scaffolding device to rebuild the ear profile by inserting nitinol (NiTi) implants into children’s ears. The product, earFold™ has recently been successfully acquired by Allergan.
NITI Spine Implant for Scoliosis
MediConcepts has since 2005 participated in a research program initiated by a group of leading orthopaedics surgeons from the University of Hong Kong on development a new spine implant using NiTi with its surface treated by plasma immersion technology which create a biocompatible surface for the implant for treating scoliosis patients.
Robotic Surgical Platform
MediConcepts has recently supported the Chinese University of Hong Kong in its research program aiming to develop robotic surgical platform for specific endoscopic surgical procedure.
