EndoGastric Solutions Opens Three Training Centers to Keep Up with Demand from Surgeons Wanting to Learn StomaphyX(TM) Procedures
Date:12/17/2007

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Incisionless surgery is the most significant advancement in surgical medicine in decades. It is being rapidly adopted by a wide variety of academic and private hospitals around the world, with over 700 StomaphyX(TM) and EsophyX(TM) procedures already performed globally. Despite the fact that both StomaphyX(TM) and EsophyX(TM) just obtained FDA clearance this year, over 50 U.S. centers have already been trained to perform these Natural Orifice Surgery (NOS) procedures and over 20 additional groups are scheduled to be trained in December.

Today, 3 training centers that have performed over 40 StomaphyX cases each and are starting to perform EsophyX cases are training surgeons in NOS technique. Courses are offered twice per month, with either academic or private setting options available. Current training centers include:
