non-invasive-gastric-bypass.jpg Thanks to Power Medical Interventions Inc., a leading company for development and commercialization of Intelligent Surgical Instruments for bariatric, cardiothoracic, colorectal and general surgical applications, surgeons can now perform non-invasive surgical procedures through the gastrointestinal tract. The FDA has given its approval for the revolutionary Natural Orifice Linear Cutter (NOLC) to be introduced in the market. Patients can now enjoy an infection free and painless procedure that reduces recovery time also.

Highlights of NOLC
a. This enables surgeons to perform surgical procedures through the gastrointestinal tract.
b. It is a non-invasive procedure.
c. It complements the Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery.
d. It reduces the pain, recovery time and risk of wound infection associated with traditional surgical procedures
e. It enables a surgeon to maneuver through the GI tract, turn corners and close internal wounds with precisely-fired staples.
f. This procedure combines a 12mm-wide surgical stapling device with a flexible shaft.
g. The battery powered digital control inbuilt in the NOLC helps the surgeons to give precise command to the stapling instrument at the end of the shaft.
h. This procedure takes laparoscopic surgery to a more advanced level.
i. This procedure will be helpful in high-risk bariatric or weight loss surgeries where the ability to partition the stomach without incisions will reduce infection, pain, scarring and recovery time for many patients.
