Novare Announces Successful Series of Single Port Lap Band Procedures With RealHand(R) High Dexterity Instruments
Date:9/2/2008

Dr. Julio Teixeira, Chief, Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center completes his 12th Single Port Lap-Band(R) Procedure; Bariatric patients now benefiting from 'hidden scar' procedure

CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Novare Surgical Systems announced the successful completion of a series of single port Lap-Band procedures that results in reduced scarring and less postoperative pain for patients. Dr. Julio Teixeira at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital has pioneered an innovative approach that allows for the entire Lap-Band procedure to be performed exclusively through the patient's belly button and he is believed to be the first surgeon to successfully do so. Dr. Teixeira uses RealHand HD instruments to enable the procedure and his approach eliminates an upper abdominal trocar placement that is often a site for significant patient discomfort.

"This is a major step toward reducing pain and recovery time for bariatric patients," said Dr. Teixeira. "By reducing the operative site to one single incision in the belly button we are also able to significantly improve cosmetic results for our patients," continued Dr. Teixeira. "The dexterity and control afforded by the RealHand HD instruments now opens the door for single port lap band procedures to be done safely and effectively through one single incision."

"Dr. Teixeira's impressive accomplishment represents a potential shift in the way gastric banding procedures will be performed," said Kerry Pope, Novare Surgical's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Offering patients a path to less pain and scarring is clearly an advancement and the access that RealHand provides is a cornerstone of this innovation."

The Lap-Band Adjustable Gastric Banding System (manufactured by Allergan Inc.) is a silicone band that is surgically placed to reduce the amount of food a patient can hold in his or her stomach. The band helps patients control food intake and
