The EndoRotor® is FDA cleared. The U.S. version of our interactive tool will only display the Colon Technique.
“The EndoRotor® is an exciting invention that would be easier and safer than hot biopsy or snare for flat polyp removal when piecemeal removal is necessary. This may be useful for clean up after piecemeal polypectomy or in replacement for cold snare polypectomy.”
– Norio Fukami, MD., Associate Professor University of Colorado
“The EndoRotor® builds on a smart and simple idea that has been used outside the GI tract. It has great potential to simplify resection of small mucosal lesions in the upper and lower GI tract, may aid mucosal resection of large lesions, and studies on technical feasibility and safety in humans are eagerly awaited.”
– Heiko Pohl, MD., Assistant Professor of Gastroenterology, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
Director of Endoscopy, White River Junction VA Hospital
“The EndoRotor® is a revolutionary new tool in the endoscopists toolkit that promises to help resect difficult polyps in a safe and efficient manner.”
– Sushil Duddempudi, MD., Director of Interventional Endoscopy, The Brooklyn Hospital Center
