Laparoscopic surgery, or Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), is a preferred technique over open surgery due to the potential for faster recovery time, reduced postoperative pain, and smaller incisions. MIS utilises numerous specialised laparoscopic devices that allow medical staff to control instruments while performing the procedure. MediConcepts specialise in components and complete MIS medical devices for these advanced surgical techniques, including:
Trocars | Scissors | Retractor | Tissue Retrieval System | Glue dispensing applicator | Smoke removal device | Surgical silicon valves
Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery
Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a revolutionary technique that offers surgeons and medical professionals the ability to provide scarless abdominal operations. To make this ingenious approach possible, specialised components are needed that pass an endoscope through a natural orifice such as the mouth, urethra, anus and others, then create an incision in the stomach, vagina, bladder or colon without any external scarring. MediConcepts manufactures these crucial components for NOTES for use in both clinical and surgical care. These include:
The psychological distress caused by prominent (or bat) ears can be debilitating both to children and adults. To combat this, MediConcepts has developed earFold™, an innovative concept which uses nitinol (NiTi) implants to physically reconstruct ear profile and effectively reduce the prominence of the ears’ shape. This revolutionary product even managed to catch the attention of Allergan, who acquired it as part of their product spectrum.
NITI Spine Implant for Scoliosis
MediConcepts have been at the forefront of medical research since 2005, pioneering innovative new treatments for scoliosis in the form of their NiTi Spine Implant. This technology uses NiTi (Nickel Titanium) and plasma immersion to create a biocompatible surface for the implant – a revolutionary advancement in spinal treatment. Even now, some 15 years later, this cutting-edge research continues to benefit countless patients around the world.
Robotic Surgical Platform
The Chinese University of Hong Kong’s research program, with the support of MediConcepts, is set to revolutionise the future of endoscopic surgery. Through their inventive new robotic surgical platform, they are optimising safety for practitioners and accuracy for patients by creating an impressive combination of medical, technological and engineering expertise. With MediConcepts helping to bring this groundbreaking technology to life, there is a light at the end of the tunnel signalling a brighter future for endoscopic surgical procedures.
