Let it be known that Inlet Medical Inc. has received the 2005 Company of the Year Award in the pelvic reconstructive surgery technologies category by Frost & Sullivan. The award recognized Inlet Medical for “… developing and introducing a variety of innovative, minimally invasive medical procedure kits, which provide laparoscopic approaches to treat female pelvic support problems.” The company manufactures specially designed laparoscopic instruments for a number of gynecologic procedures. From the press release:
According to Frost & Sullivan, “Inlet Medical’s innovative solutions have essentially changed the way in which women and surgeons look at female pelvic support problems. The company vision has always been to develop a straightforward laparoscopic approach that is easy to learn and perform by surgeons.”
The award cited the company’s ELEVEST® kit for the laparoscopic treatment of uterine prolapse; the AVESTA® kit, which aids surgeons repairing vaginal vault prolapse in a minimally invasive procedure; and the METRA PS® kit, designed to correct a tipped or retroverted uterus using the UPLIFT (uterine positioning by ligament investment fixation and truncation) procedure.
