Lapara Surgical is a start-up company with a mission to make laparoscopy more widely available.
Clear health and economical benefits for society put pressure on hospitals and surgeons to offer more laparoscopic procedures. This means longer working hours and complexer surgeries, which require better surgical skills and more skilled physicians. The disadvantages of conventional laparoscopy prevent the widespread use needed to meet this demand. Current technological approaches offer solutions at a high financial cost and therefore eliminate the economical benefits. An innovation is needed which offers work-related benefits for the surgeon, brings back economical benefits for the hospital and sustains the health benefits for the patient.
