Apollo Endosurgery, Inc. is dedicated to revolutionizing patient care through the development of tools for flexible surgery, which is emerging from the convergence of laparoscopic surgery and therapeutic gastroenterology. Flexible surgery minimizes the trauma of surgical access by taking advantage of natural orifices to deliver surgical tools to targeted areas. Apollo’s surgical tools will enable surgeons and gastroenterologists to offer less invasive treatment options for a variety of gastrointestinal disorders.
Apollo’s second generation OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System enables full-thickness endoscopic suturing of internal tissue without making incisions through the skin. In addition, the company recently announced the FDA clearance of their SuMO™ endoscopic tissue access and resection system. This scarless surgery system is designed to help surgeons remove large, flat precancerous gastrointestinal lesion and polyps during endoscopic procedures. Most recently, Apollo was named to the FierceMedicalDevices “Fierce 15,” a list of the top private medical device companies in 2012.
