Fujifilm Launches ELUXEO Surgical System

FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. has announced the introduction of its innovative ELUXEO Surgical System, a first-of-its-kind equipment tower comprised of products from the company’s endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery portfolios. The system leverages the company’s endoscopic image processing technology to deliver surgeons unparalleled visualization while performing both flexible and rigid endoscopy from a single tower.

The ELUXEO Surgical System was engineered to assist clinicians during a wide range of procedures, and is particularly effective for procedures that require both flexible and rigid endoscopes including pre- and post-operative EGD, colonoscopy, bariatric procedures, thoracic and interventional pulmonology surgeries, among others. There is a strong industry need for this resource to save capital costs, maximize space and improve ease of mobility in the OR.

“Today’s busy surgeons and clinical OR personnel demand tools that enhance productivity and workflow while improving the chances for more successful clinical outcomes,” says Taisuke Fujita, General Manager of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.-Endoscopy. “Fujifilm’s ELUXEO Surgical System is a powerful solution that provides unparalleled visualization and lets surgeons move seamlessly from using one scope to another with ease and confidence.”

Since the 2017-2018 academic year, the American Board of Surgery (ABS) requires all general surgery residents to complete a flexible endoscopy curriculum. And with Endoscopy as one of the top five procedures performed by ABS-certified general surgeons, this requirement gives greater assurance that ABS-certified general surgeons are sufficiently trained on the use of endoscopy to treat gastrointestinal diseases. The ELUXEO Surgical System was developed to better support this change in the standard of endoscopic care, and enable a more swift transition between the two critical tools.

Fujifilm’s ELUXEO Surgical System recently received 510(k) clearance from the FDA and is now available for sale in the U.S. Click here for more information or to request a virtual demonstration.
