Expanding Access to Sedation-Free TNE with the EvoEndo® Endoscopy System

Creating access to novel technology and improved care for every child

Denver, CO, April 10, 2024 — is proud to announce it continues to expand access to sedation-free TNE (Transnasal Endoscopy), making this vital, safer alternative available to more children nationwide.

Sedation-free TNE utilizing the EvoEndo® Single-Use Endoscopy System is a minimally invasive procedure for examining the upper gastrointestinal tract. It eliminates the potential complications and inconveniences associated with general anesthesia and is FDA-Cleared for use in patients five and older. The disposable EvoEndo Model LE Endoscope® is used only once, eliminating the risk of contamination.

Physicians across the country recognize that this innovative alternative needs to be available to patients and their families. “Sedation-Free TNE should be considered part of the standard of care in pediatric upper GI endoscopy,” said Dr. Jeffery A. Bornstein, MD, Division Chief, Pediatric Center for Digestive Health and Nutrition at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. He continued, “It provides a procedure that is cost-effective and available to the appropriate patient at any institution, large or small.”

Joel Friedlander, DO, MA-Bioethics, co-founder and CMO at EvoEndo, celebrates and thanks the visionary providers who chose to implement this technology in their practices to improve the care of patients and their families. Dr. Friedlander stated, “For medical teams, optimizing the patient and family experience with an efficient, needle-free, sedation-free endoscopic alternative compared to traditional sedation/anesthesia-based endoscopy is so important to making a rapid and accurate diagnosis in disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract.”

Sedation-Free TNE with the EvoEndo® System is already in 25 hospitals, with new locations being added every month. We are dedicated to bringing our novel technology to every state, expanding access to this alternative to all GI pediatric patients.
