The gastrointestinal endoscopic device market is growing substantially due to the aging population, the increasing prevalence of GI-related conditions, and more colorectal screening programs. Endoscopic technologies are creating a minimally-invasive or non-invasive alternative to open surgeries.
Nordson MEDICAL's portfolio of complex components and our full-service offering of design, development, and manufacture of finished devices can be used to treat many of these conditions at the highest quality.
Esophageal dilation is a minimally-invasive procedure that is used to treat achalasia by placing a tube through the mouth into the esophagus and using a balloon to stretch the muscles in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).
Cryotherapy is used in gastrointestinal endoscopy to freeze abnormal tissue to treat Barrett's Esophagus (BE).
Food is delivered directly to the gastrointestinal tract using a tube into the stomach or small intenstine, or through the nose.
A gastric bypass is a weight-loss surgery that can be performed laparoscopically.
A hernia occurs when tissue, usually in the intestine or stomach, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. It can be repaired using laparoscopic surgery.

Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting
This procedure is performed in conjunction with coronary artery bypass surgery, where a healthy blood vessel is harvested from the patient's leg or arm to be used as the bypass graft.
