WOM provides pioneering medical technology to large customers, so that doctors in Minimally Invasive Medicine can work as safely and reliably as possible. We create the foundation so that surgical teams can treat their patients optimally with gentle surgical procedures and achieve excellent medical results. We offer service to our business partners right from the start, from joint research and development to certification and reliable production "made in Germany".
Minimally invasive procedures have become the gold standard worldwide for many indications. Trocars are inserted into the body through small, up to one centimeter long incisions. The surgical teams insert an endoscope and special surgical instruments into the body through these trocars to diagnose and treat conditions.
In Minimally Invasive Medicine, good visibility and precise incisions are the nuts and bolts. However, both are only possible when there is enough space for the scope and medical instruments. Insufflators and Pumps are needed to dilate body cavities reliably with medical CO2 or fluid for stable internal surgical sites. WOM is the global leader and pioneer for Insufflators in the field of laparoscopy and for Pump systems in the field of gynecology.
Insufflators from WOM feature modes that provide support during cardiac bypass surgery, among others. The vessels are first harvested from the heart patient and are then used as a bypass for the diseased arteries in the heart. Previously, very long incisions in the legs were necessary to harvest these bypass vessels. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery is now embarking on a quite new and gentle path with a multifunction instrument developed by WOM and an Insufflator.
The patient's health is the top priority in the surgical field. This is especially true for the use of sterile equipment. This includes all tube sets that are connected to Insufflators or Pumps and the patient. Filters at the patient output of the devices are critical to protect Insufflators against fluids and germs. Once contaminated, the devices can no longer be used with other patients. Our all-in-one tube systems together with the appropriate filters provide maximum safety.
Original accessories from WOM – hospitals, surgeons, and patients can rely on us when it comes to safe accessories in Minimally Invasive Medicine.
