Levita(R) Magnetics Wins FDA Clearance for Pioneering MARS(TM) SystemFirst-of-its-kind minimally invasive surgery platform that combines magnets and machines
Designed to bring benefits to patients, surgeons, and surgery centers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 22, 2023 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Levita Magnetics, whose mission is to help more patients get access to better surgery, announced today it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its MARS™ platform.
The Levita MARS system is a first-of-its-kind minimally invasive surgical platform aimed at the high-volume abdominal surgery market. Harnessing the power of both magnets and machines, MARS reduces the number of incisions and enables surgeons to have complete control during laparoscopic procedures, all in a compact footprint designed to fit into existing operating rooms.
Building on the success of its first commercial product, the Levita Magnetic Surgical System®, Levita designed MARS to deliver the same patient benefits as Magnetic Surgery®, while empowering surgeons with increased control of surgical instruments and providing an efficient way for hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to incorporate this new technology.
"Today marks a significant milestone in Levita's mission to provide more patients access to state-of-the-art surgical technology. MARS is poised to revolutionize surgical options for a broad range of patients," said Dr. Alberto Rodriguez-Navarro, surgeon, founder, and CEO of Levita Magnetics. "With this FDA clearance, we eagerly anticipate making a substantial impact across the value chain."
MARS aims to deliver triple impact:
- Patients experience less-invasive surgery with reduced incisions, resulting in less pain, faster recovery, and fewer scars.
- Surgeons benefit from a surgical system giving them full control over both the laparoscopic view - reducing the need for an additional assistant - as well as over the Magnetic Surgical System, enabling retraction of large tissues and organs such as the liver, gallbladder, prostate, and colon.
- Hospitals and ASCs can benefit from increased efficiency, more effective deployment of OR personnel, and the ability to offer a differentiated patient experience.
