We hope that this edition of the Banding Bulletin finds you well! We’d like the opportunity to present a bit more information about the new CRH O’Regan System, point you in the direction of some new videos, and announce our latest series of webinars!
CRH is continuing the roll-out of our new technology, which features a number of technological improvements, including:
• Integrated obturator
• Anti-pinch technology
• Locking “band pusher”
• Easy locking/unlocking plunger
• Improved packaging
These new features enhance both the provider and patient experience, while still providing superior clinical results for your patients.
Our updated tutorial videos featuring the new ligator can be found on our website HERE. These 12 videos take you through some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about the device and our treatment protocols, including a video passing along some of the tips and tricks that should help you with the new technology.
Technical maneuvers that are most helpful when using the new CRH O’Regan System are included in this NEW PROCEDURAL TIPS VIDEO.
We have had a few calls wondering if the new ligator’s “business end” was a smaller diameter, or if the amount of suction generated was less than the old technology. In fact, both the diameter of the end of the syringe and the amount of suction generated are both unchanged.
We have also recently updated our patient education video which can be found in the marketing section of our website HERE. This video, which provides patients with an overview of the procedure, can be embedded on your practice’s website or shown in your patient waiting areas.
We would love the opportunity to show off our new technology at your clinic, whether it be for a new training session or a “refresher” for you and your staff.
For those not currently using the technology, our training sessions include a didactic presentation covering a host of anorectal issues, followed by a “hands-on” banding session. For those of you already using the device, we will in-service everyone on the new device, and help with any patients you might have as well. If there is any value in having us visit, please contact ME and we’ll get you on our calendar!
We will be holding our next round of webinars on August 15th to discuss some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive (in general, and with regards to the new ligator). We’ll be getting those invites emailed out in a couple of weeks, but please feel free to contact ME if there are any questions that I can address in the meantime.
Thanks again for checking out this Banding Bulletin, and I will hope to see everyone soon.
