Queen’s Award-winning surgical device comes to Australia

IMedCare to distribute Galaxy II® surgical retractor from JUNE MEDICAL in Australia

MELBOURNE, Australia – Dec. 7, 2022 – PRLog — JUNE Medical Group, creator of the revolutionary Galaxy II surgical retractor, is expanding its international footprint and partnering with IMedCare to bring The Queen’s Award winning self- retaining retractor Galaxy II to surgeons in Australia.

JUNE has launched the award-winning Galaxy II, revolutionising surgical practice in key areas such as ENT, Hernia, Gynae and urology. Following the immense success of the UK launch to the NHS, the company is set to distribute the Galaxy II to offer surgeons across a range of specialties the best surgical access and the clearest view of surgical sites.

Angela Spang, CEO of JUNE Medical, commented: “We are delighted to be bringing the international success of the Galaxy II to operating rooms down under, and look forward to delivering significant waste and cost savings across the Australian healthcare system with our retractor. IMedCare shares our passion and dedication for providing innovative surgical solutions and is renowned for delivering results where they are needed most. We are excited to see what this partnership will bring.”

Dr. Wael Agur is a lead surgeon with the NHS in the United Kingdom. He comments why this is great news for surgeons and their patients:

“The hooks supplied with other retractors are available in standard sharp or blunt varieties, but I found that the sharp hooks caused too much tearing and the damaged areas needed suturing, whereas the blunt hooks didn’t hold the tissue well at all. In contrast, the atraumatic semi-blunt hooks with the Galaxy II are pointed enough but not too sharp, and provide just the right balance between adequately retracting the tissue and avoiding unnecessary trauma.”

Tyson Osborne, Business Unit Manager of ImedCare commented: “After some difficult years in the healthcare sector, the need for Galaxy II in Australia is enormous. The enthusiasm from surgeons and nurses has been immeasurable, and we can’t wait to offer this sought after solution to our customers.”
