biolitec®:Technological leader for minimally invasive laser therapies establishes laser procedures for varicose veins and anal fistulas

Unique high quality lasers and fibers through decades of research and innovation – excellent therapeutic and patient friendly results with customized laser therapies for phlebology, coloproctology, urology, and gynecology

Jena, October 14, 2015 – On a regular basis, biolitec® presents product innovations in the field of laser medicine which revolutionize minimally invasive surgery in various medical areas.

The leading company for laser medicine has recently introduced a new laser therapy for the gentle treatment of hemorrhoids and anal fistulas to the market.

The FiLaC® procedure (Fistula-tract Laser Closure) for the treatment of anal fistulas and pilonidal cysts removes the fistula tracts in a most gentle way. With this minimally invasive therapy, the sphincter is not damaged, and all functions remain intact. Now, FiLaC® is also being used to treat pilonidal cysts. The laser treatment achieves the same excellent results regarding minimal wound surfaces and cosmetic results as it does in treatments of anal fistulas. The biolitec® lasers and fibers for coloproctology can also be used for the removal of polyps, genital warts and fissures.

Other laser therapies by biolitec® cover different applications such as varicose veins, myomas, and benign prostate hyperplasia. With biolitec® products, outstanding treatment results can be achieved in hospitals as well as in practices.

As a result of their research, the biolitec® not only develops laser therapies, but has also redefined and innovated their laser technology. The unique FUSION® technology developed by biolitec® makes their laser therapies safer as the silica glass caps are fused to the fiber and not only glued. That way they resist the highest temperatures and mechanical strains during the procedures.

Because of their long experience in the field of laser applications and their ever-growing demand of themselves, biolitec® has developed products that distinguish themselves through their easy use, their brilliant therapeutic results and their high standard of safety.
