Titan Medical Announces American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy Global Congress Participation
TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Titan Medical Inc. (Nasdaq: TMDI; TSX: TMD), a medical technology company focused on single access robotic-assisted surgery (RAS), today announced its attendance at the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy (AAGL) 51st Global Congress on minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) being held December 1-4, 2022 in Aurora, Colorado.
“Participation at the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy Global Congress aligns with Titan’s mission of improving outcomes for patients, hospitals and surgeons in our initial pursuit of gynaecological surgical indications. Titan’s technology maximizes patient outcomes by minimizing incisions, and nowhere is that more important and impactful than in the world of women’s health, which will be our first area of focus. Our Enos™ platform is designed to promote faster recovery, shorter hospital stays, lower risk of infection, fewer scars and less post-operative pain due to a singular small incision. As Titan enhances its focus on innovation and the unique and positive ways that it can be competitive and meet the needs of the market, we are committed to value creation”, stated Cary G. Vance, Titan’s President and CEO.
“We look forward to meeting with nationally renowned gynecologic surgeons to learn more about their surgical experience with traditional methods of surgery and multi-port RAS systems. Initiating and continuing conversations with potential users and purchasers of the Enos™ single-access RAS system will further clarify our next steps in advancing new and disruptive technology in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, and how Titan may fit into future surgical practice,” Mr. Vance continued. “We also plan to meet with other minimally invasive surgical companies to build awareness of our platform and discuss opportunities for collaboration to improve outcomes for women’s health in gynecologic surgery, as a high unmet need exists in optimizing the recoveries of patients, post-surgery. The timing is perfect for these discussions as Titan prepares for our first Enos system delivery at our Chapel Hill facility next month,” concluded Mr. Vance.
AAGL is the largest medical society focused on gynecologic surgery, with an international membership of over 7,100 physicians and healthcare providers committed to advancing MIGS. AAGL’s Annual Global Congress is the premier scientific program that provides the world’s finest gynecologic surgeons with the latest education and best practices in MIGS.
