Lankenau Medical Center to acquire 270Surgical’s SURROUNDSCOPE for Superior Laparoscopic Surgery Safety and Efficiency

(Netanya, Israel) 6 June 2023 – Lankenau Medical Center and Dr. John Marks, internationally recognized for outstanding expertise and innovation in minimally invasive surgery, has acquired SURROUNDSCOPE™ from 270Surgical Ltd.

The SURROUNDSCOPE™, developed and manufactured by 270Surgical, is a pioneering laparoscopic system, enabling surgeons a new, safer, and more efficient way to operate.

The revolutionary 270 ̊ Surround Field of View technology reduces ‘off-screen’ injuries, provides surgeons unparalleled visibility, and has the potential to substantially improve patient outcomes.

“A 270-degree view is incredible and so much more than we see in laparoscopic and robotic surgery,” says Dr. Marks. “It’s even more than we can see in open surgery.”

“With a much better view of what’s all around the area where we’re operating – meaning no blind spots – we can avoid possible injury to tissues that are off screen,” Dr. Marks adds. “It’s just so much safer as well as more efficient, since we don’t need to move the laparoscope to see better.”

Additional benefits of the SURROUNDSCOPE™- the world’s first FDA Cleared 270-degree field-of-view laparoscope system are the prevention of fogging on the camera and the ability to see through smoke caused by tissue cauterization, both representing a tremendous advantage compared to standard laparoscopes available in the market.

“Standard laparoscopes have lenses that fog when inside the body,” says Dr. Marks. “When this happens, we need to pull the laparoscope out of the body, clear the lens and then put it back inside to continue. This might happen four or more times during an operation. Because this new device is designed to prevent fogging, we can keep the camera in the body without having to clear it, for a shorter operating time. It’s a huge benefit.”

Avi Levy, the inventor of SURROUNDSCOPE™ and CEO of 270Surgical commented: “We are very proud to have identified Lankenau Medical Center as a premier location for us to enter the U.S. Market. Dr. Marks is a visionary and globally respected surgeon who shares our passion for making surgery safer and more efficient for patients and surgeons, and to expand the use of MIS in the future for improved surgery outcomes and patients’ comfort.”

270Surgical’s SURROUNDSCOPE featured in “Surgical Endoscopy Journal”

Netanya, Israel and Dallas TX – August 20, 2021 – 270Surgical Ltd. (the “Company”) announces a new publication at the prestigious Surgical Endoscopy Journal, highlighting the company’s ground-breaking visualization system, the SURROUNDSCOPE, and its potential to revolutionize the field by improving visualization, enhancing patient safety, and reducing procedure duration.

The field of laparoscopic surgery continues to evolve with groundbreaking advancements aimed at improving patient outcomes and surgical precision. In an exciting development, 270Surgical’s revolutionary laparoscopic system has captured the attention of the medical community, earning a prestigious publication in the renowned Surgical Endoscopy Journal.
The study took place at Bnai Zion Medical Center in Israel and the Minnesota Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery in the US. 

Making Strides in Laparoscopy

270Surgical’s publication in the Surgical Endoscopy Journal signifies a significant leap forward in the field of laparoscopic surgery. The study titled “The Introduction of Wide-Angle 270° Laparoscopy through a Novel Laparoscopic Camera System” showcases the company’s pioneering laparoscopic technology and its potential to transform surgical procedures.

A Revolutionary Camera System

The core innovation at the heart of 270Surgical’s laparoscopic system is the SURROUNDSCOPE camera. Traditionally, laparoscopic surgery has been limited by a narrow field of view (FOV) of 70°. This constrained perspective can result in complications and compromised visualization during procedures. However, the SURROUNDSCOPE system takes a bold leap by expanding the FOV to an impressive 270°. Achieved through the integration of side cameras at the distal tip of the laparoscope, this expanded FOV opens up new possibilities for surgeons.

In addition to the expanded FOV, 270Surgical’s system addresses two common obstacles encountered in laparoscopic surgery: fogging and smoke accumulation. The SURROUNDSCOPE’s innovative technology and advanced LED illumination eliminates fogging, ensuring optimal visualization throughout the procedure. Moreover, the impact of smoke is greatly reduced, alleviating the need for laparoscope removal or venting, and allowing surgeons to maintain clear visualization without interruption.

Positive Initial Clinical Experience

The publication outlines the promising results obtained during the initial clinical experience with the SURROUNDSCOPE. Thirty-seven laparoscopic surgeries were performed, with all procedures completed successfully and without adverse events. Surgeons and camera holders provided valuable feedback, highlighting the system’s advantages over traditional laparoscopy.

Surgeons reported improved visualization, as the SURROUNDSCOPE system allowed them to track surgical tools from the port to the surgical site without the need for constant camera manipulation. The expanded FOV also enabled the identification of potentially adverse events occurring outside the central frame, further enhancing patient safety.

As the medical community eagerly awaits further research and quantification of the system’s benefits, the publication serves as a testament to the dedication of 270Surgical in developing innovative solutions that advance surgical techniques.


The inclusion of 270Surgical’s journal publication in the esteemed Surgical Endoscopy Journal is a testament to the transformative potential of their laparoscopic system. With its expanded FOV, elimination of fogging, and reduced impact of smoke, the SurroundScope system has the potential to reshape the future of laparoscopic surgery. This pioneering technology brings hope for improved surgical outcomes, setting the stage for a new era of precision and innovation in the operating room.

About the SurroundScope System

The SurroundScope System consists of a hardware, software and electro-optic solution that incorporates a myriad of lenses at the distal end of the scope. The result is a specialty laparoscopic system that addresses three long-standing challenges in laparoscopy, including restricted field-of-view, surgical smoke (plume), and lens fogging. The SurroundScope is the first marketable laparoscope that offers up to a 270-degree field-of-view, which is an increase of 200% compared to other laparoscopes in the market. This expanded field-of-view is expected to have considerable implications for procedures performed within the disciplines of general surgery, trauma, OBGYN, and thoracic surgery.
