“For years, I felt that some sort of device should be developed to help the surgeon control trocar insertion. I contacted Innovamed, and they developed a simple, inexpensive and highly effective solution. In my opinion, the Laprostop® should be used for every laparoscopic procedure.”
- Patrick Diesfeld, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., Ventura Surgery Center, Ventura, CA
“I’ve used the Laprostop for many laparoscopic procedures and it works very well. It is easy to use, and can be sutured to the patient’s skin to help provide more vertical and lateral stability. The Laprostop helps me keep the trocar at a predetermined depth, which facilitates instrument exchanges during a procedure.” - Mark Surrey, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., F.A.C.S., Roxbury Surgery Center, Beverly Hills, CA
Dr. Rudy De Wilde participated in the Laprostop clinical evaluations in May and June 2007, during which time he performed 40 laparoscopic procedures using the Laprostop device. He had this to say about his experience with the Laprostop:
"I found that using the Laprostop helped me keep the trocars at a safe, predetermined depth during the procedures, which allowed me to focus my attention on the procedure. The Laprostop was very easy to use."

Dr. Johan Van Der Wat is a laparoscopic surgeon specializing in OB-GYN. He participated in the clinical evaluations for Laprostop, and used the device in 25 procedures during May and June of 2007:
"I found that the Laprostop was very easy to use, and could be attached to the trocar very quickly by me or the operating room staff. The Laprostop helped me control the trocar during insertion and helped keep them at a safer depth."
