Performing these procedures in the physician's office allows the physician the ability to “see and treat” the patient without the time, inconvenience and cost of going to the hospital.
“Tissue resection procedures are very common in my practice,” said Dr. Mayeda. “The RESECTR allowed me to treat the patient upon diagnosis. This provides the patient with a safe treatment without the anxiety of coming back to the hospital. Performing the procedure in my office also significantly reduces the cost to our healthcare system.”
Tissue resection may be performed throughout the body with numerous devices and techniques. Uterine polyps are often removed by passing a small cylindrical medical device, or tissue resector, with electrically powered cutting blades through a long hysteroscope to target and remove pathology.
“Current tissue resection devices are expensive and prohibit me from doing these procedures in my office,” continued Dr. Mayeda. “The RESECTR device gives me a cost effective way to offer similar treatment to my patients.
RESECTR’s are 100% disposable manual surgical instruments powered by an award-winning handle controlled by the clinician. Physicians control cutting blade actuation when they squeeze the handles to actuate the distal cutting blades.
“Reducing the cost of healthcare in today’s environment is the responsibility of industry,” said Chris Livingstone, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the RESECTR platform. “The RESECTR device helps physicians treat their patients while lowering the cost of healthcare. Providing the physicians with a tool that allows them to ‘see and treat’ patients while reducing the cost is a winning combination.”
