Our patent-pending device
enhances the way surgeons
perform bariatric surgery.

Our fluorescence-guided esophagogastric calibration system allows surgeons to precisely visualize the gastric calibration tube during a variety of minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic procedures.

The Endolumik System

Illuminating the Potential of Surgical Devices

Endolumik has developed a patent-pending fluorescence-guided esophagogastric calibration system (i.e. bougie) for use in bariatric and gastric surgery.  The novel integration of near-infrared lighting with the intra-gastric stent is designed to improve visualization, situational awareness, consistency, and help reduce adverse events in robotic and laparoscopic operations.  Surgical teams will have unprecedented visibility, which can improve efficiency and consistency.
