Lumenis is sponsoring the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s landmark scientific symposium, ‘Advancing the Art and Science of Endometriosis: Stem Cells to Radical Excision Surgery’.

(Vocus) May 21, 2010 -- Lumenis Ltd., a global developer, manufacturer and seller of laser, light-based and radiofrequency devices for surgical, aesthetic, and ophthalmic applications, announced today it is sponsoring the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s landmark scientific symposium, ‘Advancing the Art and Science of Endometriosis: Stem Cells to Radical Excision Surgery’.

“This sponsorship represents Lumenis’ commitment to support research and generate awareness about an often debilitating disease that affects a large number of women”, stated Dov Ofer, Lumenis Chief Executive Officer. Endometriosis is a disease that can appear anywhere within the abdomen, treatment can be especially difficult on delicate tissues such as the bowel. The surgical treatment requires a high level of precision separating healthy from diseased tissue which is where the UltraPulse CO2 laser makes a unique contribution managing endometriosis.

First Ever Endometriosis Symposium in the US
The Endometriosis Foundation’s inaugural symposium will take place at the prestigious New York Academy of Sciences on May 20th, 2010 as a precursor to the second annual Endometriosis fundraiser, the Blossom Ball. It will be the first scientific conference regarding Endometriosis in the United States. Thought leaders from all around the US will gather to advance the dialogue regarding early intervention, treatment, socioeconomic burdens, and other related topics for Endometriosis.

“Lumenis is proud to be a part of such an important cause. Endometriosis is an unbiased disease that affects women all over the world. We will continue in our efforts to bring women the best treatment options”, stated Caroline Coyle, Lumenis Senior Vice President and General Manager, Surgical Business Unit.

Endometriosis, affecting up to 10% of women, is the disease when endometrial cells travel outside of the uterus and implant themselves on organs. These cells still bleed during a woman’s monthly cycle and can cause excruciating pain, as well as infertility. Often symptoms are brushed off as an exaggerated pain but doctors and patients are recently opening their eyes to this legitimate disease.

UltraPulse CO2 Laser
As more gynecological procedures move to minimally invasive endoscopic or laparoscopic surgery, the use of lasers will also continue to increase. Lumenis has kept pace with this expanding field by collaborating with endoscope, laparoscope and colposcope manufacturers. The UltraPulse SurgiTouch laser system combines the best in CO2 laser technologies and offers the most innovative approach to laser surgery today. No other CO2 laser matches its ease-of-use, versatility, precision, control or performance. The UltraPulse provides reduced thermal damage to surrounding tissues and unparalleled char-free ablation, vaporization, excision or incision of soft tissues for endometriosis treatment. Dr. Camran Nezhat, a pioneer in laparoscopic laser surgery for Endometriosis, who will also be honored at the symposium, added, “The CO2 laser enables expert laparoscopic surgeons to treat the most extensive endometriosis safely, accurately, and effectively."
