Bang Surgical Successfully Moves Low Cost OR Product Support System Into Urology
Wednesday Jan 25 2012
San Antonio – January 25, 2012: Dr. Naveen Kella was the world’s first Urologist to use Bang Surgical’s OR product support system during one of his robotic prostate cases.
Dr. Kella is Texas’ #1 robotic assisted Urologists, performing more cases than any other Urology surgeon in Texas in 2010. Dr. Kella has brought his surgical expertise to serve the people of Texas (www.texasroboticsurgery.com). His leadership in minimally invasive robotic assisted surgery often requires him to travel in order to train and give talks to other Urologists around the world. Bang Surgical’s product support system allows Dr. Kella to share his expertise during Urology surgery without the high cost and travel time. This will greatly improve the care patients receive not only from Dr. Kella, but also to patients and hospitals around the world.

Dr. Naveen Kella was the first in San Antonio and south Texas to offer patients minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical System. Ted Schwartz, CEO, of Bang Surgical, states, “Our OR video conferencing system allows not just multiple surgeons from all over the US to participate during surgery, but also allows medical device companies’ representatives and engineers to provide support of their products during surgery. This is a first in Urological surgery with huge opportunities for hospitals to improve patient care and reduce costs.”
