Our innovations have helped healthcare professionals enhance the lives of more than 1500 patients worldwide to date. Craig and Mary are just a couple of those patients to have felt the benefits of our Advanced Energy technology by undergoing a Speedboat Inject procedure at the World's first complex polyp service; East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust's (EKHUFT). Watch their patient interview videos below to learn more.
Retired maths teacher Chris Grayling only visited his GP at his wife's insistence. Tests revealed an 11cm growth in his bowel. Initially, Chris was told he would require a major operation that would have left him with a colostomy bag and an altered life. Thanks to the advanced capabilities of Speedboat Inject and the world-leading complex polyp service it has facilitated at NHS East Kent Hospitals Trust, Chris's lesion was removed endoscopically, en-bloc and with no pain to the patient. He left the hospital the following morning and was back in the gym in no time. Histology showed the procedure to be curative.
Chris Grayling is one of well over a thousand patients all over the world to have already felt the benefits of Creo’s Advanced Energy Technology.
They said, a few years ago I would have ended up with a colostomy bag for six months to a year. If that was the option to keep me alive I would have taken it, but now I feel like I’ve got off virtually scot-free. One of my closest friends died of bowel cancer and that made me so frightened. I can’t thank the team enough for everything they have done. They were brilliant and I owe them my life.
Mary was given a diagnosis following a colonoscopy as an outpatient and was given a choice of two treatments for her condition, of which she chose Speedboat Submucosal Dissection. Following treatment she experienced no pain and was successfully discharged from hospital the same day.
I would absolutely recommend this procedure, 100% yes. It doesn't impact you or your life, and once its done and you have your recovery, you can actually just carry on.
