Advancing the science and practice of nerve protection and repair
Each year millions of surgeries are performed that carry significant risk of intraoperative nerve injury or require precise nerve exploration and repair. The standard of care across surgical specialties encourages surgeons to actively identify, assess and protect nerves during surgery. At Checkpoint Surgical our mission is to advance the science and practice of nerve protection and repair to improve the quality of life for patients and physicians.
Using Checkpoint products is the best method for protecting nerves during surgery. Our handheld, surgeon-controlled nerve stimulation/monitoring devices provide surgeons with real time, reliable and reproducible data regarding nerve structures in the surgical field.
There are cases where the anatomy is altered and nerves are obscured by scar tissue as a result of a previous surgery, traumatic injury, disease or medical treatment. In these cases surgeons use Checkpoint to safely and reliably aid in the location, mapping and identification of nerves in the surgical site.
In nerve repair surgery, Checkpoint devices help surgeons to assess nerve continuity and excitability to determine the appropriate surgical pathway. Watch these two videos tell inspiring stories of remarkable patients and how their surgeon, using Checkpoint, had a powerful and lasting impact on the quality of their lives
