Spider Surgical System

Spider System has advantages despite learning curve

The Spider (Single Port Instrument Delivery Extended Reach) Surgical System (TransEnterix) has several advantages despite a steep learning curve, according to a study that compared standard laparoscopy and Spider’s technical performance on a surgical simulator, using standardised tasks from the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS).

Mini-gastric bypass performed with SPIDER Surgical System

TransEnterix’s minimally invasive surgical platform, the SPIDER Surgical System, has been used to successfully perform a mini-gastric bypass.

The procedure was performed by Dr Michel Gagner at Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou in Paris. Gagner was assisted by Professor Jean-Marc Chevallier, who heads the hospital’s digestive, endoscopy and obesity department.

Spider Surgical System makes Indian debut

TransEnterix single-incision Spider Surgical System has been used in the Asian-Pacific Region for the first time.

Dr Michel Gagner, who was attending the symposium and surgical workshop at the Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery at Max Super Specialty Hospital in New Delhi, performed four sleeve gastrectomies using the system.

He explained that the Spider platform allows surgeons to exercise advanced minimally invasive techniques while preserving the triangulation capacity they expect during laparoscopic procedures.
