"In over 600 bariatric cases, we have seen excellent staple formation with the AEON endostapler. The unique dual firing gear allows for slow, controlled firing resulting in the best hemostasis I’ve seen and a low risk for post-operative complications for our patients.
Furthermore, I think the future is bright for Lexington Medical and it makes a lot of sense for surgeons to partner with them as they deliver top service, consistently respond to surgeon feedback, and offer high quality products at a competitive price."

"Prior to using AEON, we performed testing on excised stomach specimens to evaluate both staple formation and risk of leaks. The AEON consistently outperformed the other staplers and we quickly became very comfortable with the product. Our patient results have been fantastic in over 600 bariatric cases. With the various staple heights made for variable tissue thickness, we have found our staple formation has been consistent even when crossing staple lines.
In addition, it is refreshing to have a new option in surgical stapling from a company stirring things up by driving more value and innovation in the market. I’ve never experienced such responsiveness from a company or openness to feedback."

"The AEON endostapler works great. I and my three partners have completed over 500 bariatric cases and been very satisfied with the clean, beautiful staple lines. Previously, I was frustrated by other companies for their yearly price increases with no real noteworthy product improvements.
With AEON, we are finding superior hemostasis as the fresh blade with each reload makes for a much less traumatic, smooth serosal edge. Other products often required much time spent cauterizing and applying clips to reinforce the staple line. The AEON is a true ‘win-win’ as it is a high quality product available at a competitive price, I've experienced zero complications, and has resulted in a significant cost savings for our procedures."
Greg Walton, MD, FACS
Dr. Walton is a Bariatric Surgeon and MBS Director at Summit Medical Center in Oklahoma City, OK. He is also the owner of WeightWise Bariatric Program.
"As an early adopter of the AEON endostapler, we’ve been fortunate to observe and be part of product evolution over a relatively short period of time. Namely, we have found the new dual firing gear allows for much smoother, easier firing in the thicker tissue of the stomach.
In addition, my partner and I operate at a physician-owned facility where we have performed over 900 bariatric cases with the AEON. We are always looking to keep our costs down while not compromising safety or patient outcomes. Partnering with Lexington Medical has allowed for us to continue to deliver on our track record of optimal patient outcomes at a price point that is attractive in today’s market. "
