PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Onkos Surgical, Inc. announced today that it has launched MyTray, a fully integrated personal surgical planning solution that leverages preoperative imaging and the precision of surgeon specific procedural requirements; all delivered in the convenience of personalized instrumentation trays. The MyTray solution is powered by the company's novel digital health platform called uDesign™.
"We continue to invest heavily in our uDesign digital health platform with our focus on Precision Oncology," said Patrick Treacy, Onkos CEO and Co-founder. "Our approach is customer centric and we continue to expand our products and services based on surgeon need and feedback. With this platform, we can increase personalization, reduce complexity and bring meaningful innovation for our customers and their patients in a market that has been largely ignored for the last twenty years," said Treacy.
Steven Gitelis, MD, Onkos Surgical Chief Medical Officer and Associate Chief Medical Officer at Rush University said, "Current work flow in orthopedic tumor and revision surgeries can be challenging based on the complexity of the procedures. Sick patients with high risks of infection, complex surgical procedures and inconsistency in surgical support staff can influence surgical outcomes. The MyTray solution may reduce unnecessary intraoperative complexity for the surgeon, create consistency for staff and improve surgical workflow," explained Dr. Gitelis.
"The MyTray solution will streamline my surgeries," said Jorge Casas-Ganem, MD, Founder of Dallas Sarcoma Associates. "I expect that having a personalized, patient-specific surgical plan that is based on the unique needs of the case will simplify instrumentation, eliminate redundancy in surgical pans, and reduce waste, resulting in shorter operative times, decreased turnover times between cases, and reduced incidence of lost or misplaced instruments processed through the sterile processing department. Optimal efficiency in the OR is extremely important for these debilitated and immunosuppressed patients. The MyTray solution can be the difference between a good outcome and a limb- or life-threatening complication. Access to the uDesign plan prior to surgery reduces uncertainty in surgical planning by allowing the population of surgical trays with the appropriate sequence and sizes of instruments, resulting in enhanced work flow during the procedure," said Casas-Ganem.
