The SPIDER® Surgical System is advancing minimally invasive surgery by reducing the need for multiple incisions while providing additional capabilities to surgeons. Patients who receive a SPIDER Surgical procedure may experience less scarring with the potential for limited post-operative pain and a fast recovery to normal activities. Surgeons who use the SPIDER Surgical System benefit from single site triangulation with true left and true right control over flexible, articulating instruments.
The SPIDER MicroLap Instruments allow surgeons to utilize a simple skin prick to further advance microlaparoscopic surgery.
