Novare Announces First Ever Single Port Laparoscopic Kidney Removal (Nephrectomy) Using RealHand(TM) HD Instruments
Date:8/27/2007

Urology Third Specialty to Benefit From Hidden Scar Surgical Technique

Performed Through the Belly Button

CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Novare Surgical Systems announced today the successful completion of what are believed to be the first ever laparoscopic nephrectomies that left no visible scar. The procedures were performed by Dr. Jeffrey Cadeddu, associate professor of urology and radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX.

"A laparoscopic approach already means a smaller incision, less pain and shorter recovery time for the patient," said Dr. Cadeddu, who leads the Clinical Center for Minimally Invasive Treatment of Urologic Cancer. "Now noticeable scarring has been removed as a side-effect from this type of procedure. We're showing surgeons can do a procedure using only one hole and that they can hide the hole in a cosmetically advantageous or less painful location. In trying to minimize the invasiveness of this surgery, the trauma was consolidated to a very small incision."

These cases follow announcements of gall bladder removals, total laparoscopic hysterectomies and ovary removals being performed utilizing the Single Port Access technique first developed at the Drexel University College of Medicine. "With Dr. Cadeddu's accomplishment, RealHand HD instruments have enabled Single Port Access Surgery in urology as well as gynecology and general surgery," said Kerry Pope, Novare Surgical's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Patients who are candidates for this and other laparoscopic surgical procedures can now receive surgical treatment with the important potential benefits of less postoperative pain and no visible scar. We are dedicated to expanding Single Port Access surgery into more procedures so that more patients can have access to this groundbreaking surgical approach."
