TEO® – Transanal Endoscopic Operations

The minimally invasive transanal platform for the treatment of rectal neoplasia

Transanal Endoscopic Operations (TEO®) combines the minimal invasiveness of an intervention via a natural body orifice (NOTES) with the precision of resection under endoscopic microsurgery.

Special Features:

  • Available in lengths of 7.5, 15 and 20 cm
  • Compatible with all standard camera systems for laparoscopy
  • Mechanical holding arm enables the platform to be placed in a very stable position
