Pristine Surgical has accelerated the launch of its Summit 4K single-use surgical arthroscope, which is now available to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers across the United States.
Summit is ready to use right out of the box and comes pre-installed with Pristine Connect software for cloud-connected surgical image and video storage and automated inventory management.
“We developed Summit to address the challenges inherent to conventional surgical visualization—which relies on reusable arthroscopes that become obsolete, are difficult and costly to maintain and are prone to wear, damage, and potential infection,” said Dr. Stephen J. Snyder, a pioneer in shoulder arthroscopy and Pristine Surgical’s Chief Medical Officer. “It is a major leap forward in a field that hasn’t changed much in my 40-plus years of practice, and when we saw the positive response and impact it was having in our limited market rollout, we were confident it was time to fully launch Summit in the marketplace.”
Summit integrates with a surgery centers existing endoscopy tower, allowing ASCs to upgrade to 4K without major capital investment. It is delivered via a scopes-by-subscription business model and has transparent pricing to make this breakthrough medical device cost-effective and practical. Through sustainability partnerships, Pristine Surgical will also provide recycling options to its customers.
