Boston Scientific Acquires Tumor Surgery Technology
New England Council member Boston Scientific recently acquired a medical device that improves endoscopic surgery for precancerous tumors.
Boston Scientific purchased the LumenR Tissue Retractor System from LumenR LCC. The system can make endoscopic submucosal dissection and endoscopic mucosal resection easier and faster, leading to better care for patients. It improves visualizations of lesions, making it easier for surgeons to complete the procedures.
“We are excited about the potential of the LumenR system to improve visibility and control during ESD and EMR procedures and improve quality of life for patients,” said Art Butcher, senior vice president and president, endoscopy. “Every year, patients around the world undergo open gastrointestinal surgery that has a profound impact on their lives. By bringing this innovative technology forward, we have an opportunity for more physicians to treat patients successfully through less invasive endoscopic procedures.”
