Intelligent Photonics Technology Enables Minimally Access Breast Surgery

Our portfolio of products are designed to optimize breast and reconstructive surgery especially when performing hidden scar breast cancer surgery, nipple sparing / skin sparing mastectomy, breast conserving surgery (lumpectomy), and oncoplastic and reconstruction surgeries. Intelligent Photonics provides breast and plastic surgeons superior access and visualization during surgery to achieve optimal surgical and aesthetic outcomes, while enabling innovative minimal access surgeries.

  • Breast Conserving Surgery (Lumpectomy)
  • Nipple Sparing and Skin Sparing Mastectomy
  • Breast Reconstruction


Key Surgical Benefits

  • Allows for smaller incisions without sacrificing the ability to work efficiently and safely
  • Provides optimal visualization and increases surgical efficiency reducing surgical time
  • Enhanced visualization of critical structures, including immediate identification of bleeders and potential bleeders, can increase surgical efficiency and may reduce the risk of complications, including nerve damage, tissue necrosis and blood loss
  • Thermally cool illumination minimizes the risk of thermal tissue damage, patient injury and fire hazard

Visualization Points

  • Enhanced visualization the lateral mammary branches of the lateral thoracic artery and medial mammary branches of the internal thoracic artery

“The Invuity illuminated retractors are a must for anyone looking to do nipple sparing mastectomies. I feel we can save significant amounts of surgical time since we can see better without the worry of burn injury or fire hazard often found with fiber optic light.”

“Invuity’s Intelligent Photonics Technology is a must-have for all my surgical procedures, particularly lumpectomies, and skin and nipple sparing mastectomies. This technology enables me to make a single inframammary incision and clearly visualize deep into the surgical cavity all the way to the axilla. Additionally, it has enabled me to operate proficiently, improving the viability of the breast flap. I have reduced my surgical times while improving patient safety and aesthetic outcomes.”
