POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - January 23, 2014) - New Wave Surgical Corp., a surgical device company on the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies list, just announced that its flagship product D-HELP has surpassed the one-millionth procedure.
"We are most appreciative of D-HELP's global acceptance by hospitals, surgeons and surgical techs in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America," said Alexander Gomez, founder and president of New Wave Surgical. "With the implementation of our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and growing ranks of loyal users, the company is well positioned for another excellent year."
New Wave's patented D-HELP system is a device that was developed to help surgical teams see clearly throughout an entire laparoscopic or robotic surgical procedure. It is the only endoscopic visualization system that keeps the laparoscopic lens defogged and clean from the start of surgery to close.
Prior to the creation of D-HELP, fogging and laparoscope lens-cleaning remained a frustration for surgeons. When scopes get fogged and soiled from body tissue and fluids, the operating room time is extended, increasing procedure costs and patient risks.
New Wave Surgical was founded by Gomez in 2006 and currently has more than one hundred employees. Later this year, the company intends to release two more innovative products to the laparoscopic surgery market.
