KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, a leader in minimally invasive endoscopy technologies, offers solutions for GYN applications. Among our products is the Minilaparoscopy Instrument Set that provides treatment options for endometriosis that use smaller incisions and, thus, less pain and faster recovery. Because they are only about 1/8 inch in diameter, rather than the ½-inch diameter of conventional instruments, they can promote better cosmetic results for patients. Our product line also includes the EndoCAMeleon® laparoscope that offers the benefits of variable direction of view, and our RoBi® bipolar laparoscopic forceps, as well as a comprehensive line of OR and office hysteroscopy solutions.


Respect for Tissue!  Plasma Surgical markets the PlasmaJet® system, the only device that delivers a defined effect for cutting, vaporization, coagulation and dissection of tissue.  The PlasmaJet allows for controlled depth of action and minimal thermal effect, making it ideal for careful application on sensitive structures.
