You get to stick to your plan. Your patients don’t have to cancel theirs.

The new ECHELON™ 3000 Stapler is an instinctive device, designed with every body in mind, that provides flexibility and control, so you can take on even the most challenging situations and stick to your preoperative plan.

Greater Access

Greater Access

Increased articulation helps surgeons reach challenging anatomy.

The 27% increase in articulation,3 along with a shorter articulation joint,4 allows surgeons, such as those performing colorectal surgery, to access tighter areas like the pelvis region.5 This improved movement also increases the likelihood of transecting the colon in a single firing.6

Ultimately, the benefit is more than just that 27% increase. It’s an improvement in the life of a patient.

Easier Placement

Easier Placement

Wider aperture can make placing the jaws on thick tissue easier, with potentially less tissue manipulation.7

The 39% increase in aperture allows for the handling of thicker, variable tissue.8 Surgeons performing thoracic surgery, for example, now have improved access to the tighter thoracic cavity,5 while a wider jaw aperture allows for easier placement on thick, variable lung tissue.9

What matters more than the 39% greater aperture, however, is the patient’s ability to get back to doing what they love.

More Control

More Control

Powered articulation that can be set to any point allows for more precision and one-handed use.10

Having more precise control over where you place the stapler, and ultimately each staple line, can help in procedures like sleeve gastrectomies, in which the shape of the gastric sleeve is critical, impacting both weight loss and acid reflux.

More importantly, patients can enter post-operation with the confidence to continue their lives as they see fit.

Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic Surgery

“It has the flexibility that we have craved for such a long time in a stapler. The ability to articulate in the thoracic cavity is crucial for us.”

Zane T. Hammoud, MD, FACS
Chief of General Thoracic Surgery at Ascension Providence Hospital System 

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal Surgery

“The important part for me was the ease of use and how flexible it was in being able to articulate and move, as well as being able to open wider and allow more tissue to come in.”

Shekar Narayanan, MD, FACS, FASCRS
Chief of Surgical Oncology Community Health Network

Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery

“That micro adjustment you can make with it to almost any position that you want to will really help us in things like bariatric cases, where we’re making sleeve pouches or gastric bypass pouches.”

Christopher Joe Northup, MD, FACS
Bariatric Surgeon at BMI Surgery, Past-Chair, ASMBS Access to Care
Committee and ASMBS Executive Council.

More Than a Number

The ECHELON 3000 stapler delivers the staple line security you have come to expect from ECHELON staplers, with an added control and flexibility. The true benefit, however, is that those undergoing surgery can more quickly and confidently return to the lives they love.

It’s a better stapler for you, but it’s a better life for your patient.

Instinctive by Design

Instinctive by Design

“We put a lot of effort towards where we place the home button, where we place the articulation button, what’s the most obvious mapping that doesn’t require a lot of thinking from the surgeons. We want them to be able to place the device naturally without having to expend mental energy to think about what button does what.”

Senior Principal Design Engineer, ECHELON™ 3000 Stapler
