Real-time Nerve Monitoring for Laparoscopic & Robotic Prostatectomy Surgery
ProPep Surgical® is an Austin-based company that develops accurate and easy-to-use instruments which aid surgeons performing minimally invasive robotic surgery to quickly locate important nerve tissue too small to be seen.
ProPep Surgical®’s innovative technology, the ProPep® Nerve Monitoring System (US Patent 8,083,685 B2) is the first, real time nerve monitoring system specifically designed for use during laparoscopic and robotic prostatectomy surgery. This technology provides useful information to surgeons interested in locating nerve pathways which potentially control sexual function and urinary control during surgery, potentially decreasing the risk of damage to the nerves.
ProPep Surgical® is dedicated to continuing the advancement of their technology and continues to research other areas for its use, including hysterectomy and colonoscopy.
