Nothing is more important than the well-being of the people we call friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors. Olympus’ commitment to patient care extends even further as we continue to develop new ways to help people live healthier, safer, and more fulfilling lives.
A Revolutionary Approach Saves a Life
Michael Angelo was born with a rare disease that would require a liver transplant to save his life. Due to his small size, doctors were faced with the challenge of performing a transplant usually reserved for much larger babies.
The Olympus ORBEYE video microscope and the Olympus Thunderbeat advanced energy platform gave surgeons the confidence and tools to perform this revolutionary surgery, the first-ever of its kind.
Healthcare can be very social. Following his own experience with colon cancer, Gale Fritsche has made it his mission to personally inspire others to make early screening a priority. And it’s making a huge difference.
Olympus is helping standardize minimally invasive techniques for both the diagnosis and and treatment of colon cancer. Less invasive surgery means better quality of life. More effective treatment means more lives can be saved.
The treatment of emphysema has always been somewhat frustrating, with therapy options each presenting their own set of limitations.
The Olympus Spiration Valve System was chosen by Dr. Kirk Voelker, director of clinical research at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, as part of his multi-modality approach to emphysema treatment. His goal is to help patients who have maximized other therapies and are still experiencing sub-optimal quality of life.
