Cleveland Clinic Selects Laparoendoscopic Single-Site Surgery (LESS) as One of the Top Ten Innovations of 2009
Date:1/29/2009

Founder of Leader In LESS Instrumentation Is Selected for Industry Leader LESS Panel at Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambridge Endo, a pioneer in the rapidly emerging LESS (also called Single Port Access Laparoscopic Surgery or SPA) market, is pleased to announce that its president and founder, Woojin Lee, was among the industry leaders selected to be on a LESS panel at the Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit. Cambridge Endo developed, manufactures and markets the innovative Autonomy(TM) Laparo-Angle(TM) articulating instruments which, it believes, is the enabling technology that will drive the rapid uptake of this major advance in laparoscopic surgery.

In traditional laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes three to six "keyhole" incisions in multiple sites, inserts instrumentation into each "keyhole" and performs the surgery. In LESS/SPA, only one incision is made through the umbilicus (navel). All of the instruments go through this single "keyhole." Said Lee, "LESS/SPA has been called 'scarless' surgery."

According to the Cleveland Clinic, the key criteria used in selecting LESS/SPA as one of the top 10, "game changing" innovations of 2009 were:

  • "Have significant potential for short-term clinical impact (either a major improvement in patient benefit or an improved function that enhances healthcare delivery)
  • Have a high probability of success
  • Be on the market or close to being introduced
  • Have sufficient data available to support its nomination."

Inderbir S. Gill, M.D., Chairman of Urology at the Cleveland Clinic commented, "[we] performed LESS live-donor nephrectomies in nine consecutive kidney donors for kidney transplantation. All aspects of kidney harvesting were completed though the navel. Instead of a visible six-inch scar
