The Levita Magnetic Surgical System is transforming certain laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery by enabling reduced-port laparoscopic surgical procedures and minimizing the footprint of surgery. The system, which consists of an external magnet placed on the skin that controls a shaftless detachable retractor, enables instruments to move without the constraints of a fixed-position pivot point, and facilitates access and visualization of the surgical site. This system enables procedures to be performed with a reduced number of incisions and trocars for better cosmetic outcomes.
Magnetic Surgery with the Levita System allows surgeons to offer a new less invasive surgical alternative to patients.
In the United States, the Levita Magnetic Surgical System is indicated to grasp and retract the body and the fundus of the gallbladder in laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures, the liver in bariatric procedures and the prostate and periprostatic tissue in prostatectomy procedures to facilitate access and visualization of the surgical site in patients with a BMI range of 20-60 kg/m2.
