Dr. Kent Bowden, DO published a poster at SAGES, 2018, discussing the merits of the latest in low-cost robotic technology compared to hernia procedures completed with the daVinci robot in the same health system.

In conclusion, this retrospective review using concurrent case controls demonstrate that ENDOEYE FLEX 3D and FlexDex can provide excellent alternative to the da Vinci system in suture intensive procedures.

We demonstrate equivocal or better OR times, both in utilization and in cut-to-close times, and demonstrated a significant benefit in Contribution Margin as compared to the daVinci system.

This can be accomplished at lower startup and lower maintenance costs both initially and year over year.

*Contribution Margin is the portion of hospital revenue remaining after variable costs, including disposable instruments (da Vinci & FlexDex), mesh and other consumable supplies.
*The contribution margin needs to pay for Fixed Costs (service contract, capital depreciation & hospital salaries).
*The Capital purchase of the da Vinci robot and ENDOEYE FLEX 3D is separate from fixed costs and does not influence the contribution margin.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1525378410558{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]It is important to note that capital costs and service contracts were excluded, so were any additional fixed costs associated with running or maintaining a da Vinci robotic program. Had these expenses been included in the economic data, the financial advantage to ENDOEYE FLEX 3D and FlexDex would be even greater.
