EndoGastric Solutions (EGS) is a leader in the field of NOS (Natural Orifice Surgery), the next step in the evolution of minimally invasive surgery. NOS is a breakthrough surgical approach where upper abdominal operations are performed through a natural orifice, such as the mouth, enabling the surgeon to avoid abdominal incisions.
NOS is evolving surgery just as laparoscopy did in the 1980s, when surgeons moved from opening the abdominal cavity to access internal organs to instead making smaller incisions to insert a laparoscope and other surgical instruments.
EGS’ NOS device, EsophyX, is introduced transorally, through the patient’s mouth, rather than through an incision. The advantages of this approach over laparoscopic or open surgery include a greater safety profile, lower complication rates, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, reduced patient discomfort, and no scars, resulting in higher patient satisfaction. Patients are typically able to return home and to normal activities the day following the procedure.
