UT Southwestern, UT Arlington to develop magnetic surgery tools
Date:7/9/2009

DALLAS July 9, 2009 UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Arlington have reached an agreement with Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. to develop a groundbreaking toolbox of magnetically controlled surgical instruments for minimally invasive surgery.

The investigational surgical device platform includes a wide range of magnetically controlled instruments designed to give surgeons greater maneuverability and range of motion while reducing the number of entry ports into the abdominal cavity required for surgery. The Magnetic Anchoring and Guidance System (MAGS) uses magnets outside the abdomen that attract magnets attached to novel instruments inserted inside the abdomen, allowing internal movement.

"This is powerful technology and a very innovative concept," said Dr. Daniel Scott, associate professor of surgery and director of the Southwestern Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery. "These new instruments are much better than most of the currently available technology offering much better stability and maneuverability."

Physicians at UT Southwestern have been working over the last several years with engineers from UT Arlington's Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center. TMAC is the Texas affiliate of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Manufacturing Extension Partnership and part of the Automation and Robotics Research Institute. The team created several generations of prototypes that are the basis for this new technology development effort with Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc.

"The investigators have done quite a bit to advance the technology. But we've reached the point where we really need an industry partner. This agreement offers a very complementary balance of clinical knowledge, engineering capability and commercial experience," said Dr. Dennis Stone, vice president for technology development at UT Southwestern. "The ultimate goal is to wind up with an enabling new technology available to surgeons that improves cli
