Bariatric surgery patients can now have less invasive procedures with the SPIDER Surgical System because of its capability to create triangulation via a single site access point to the abdomen.  TransEnterix Inc., headquartered in North Carolina's Research Triangle, has advanced the field of minimally invasive surgery ("MIS") with its SPIDER Surgical System.
