Executive Summary

The first chapter of natural orifice surgery begins with the Apollo Group, a group of world-renowned gastroenterologists and surgeons who were frustrated with the pace of innovation in gastroenterology. They believed that there ought to be a better way to take advantage of the natural orifice access and the flexible endoscopy platforms with which they were familiar, to do more interventional procedures. The efforts of the group resulted in a pooled set of intellectual property, which became the basis of start-up Apollo Endosurgery. Apollo aims to provide surgical instrumentation designed specifically for NOTES, to help the field learn just how far minimally invasive surgery can go.
