Levita’s magnetic surgical system was granted FDA clearance and received its CE Mark.

The system was initially indicated for gallbladder removal surgery, but it is also used to magnetically retract and maneuver the gallbladder, which reduces the number of incisions.

There are more than 1,000,000 gallbladder removal surgeries, or cholecystectomies, performed annually in the United States alone. — Cynthia Jessup
