Surgical treatment of obesity in patients, whose weight exceeds 200 kg is a great challenge for surgical teams, but also for the equipment used during surgery. The ALVO Rapsodia is the first operating table model, unique in this part of Europe, which is perfectly adjusted for metabolic surgery (bariatric surgeries).

It is a high-quality product, which fits perfectly with the workflow of our operating room at the Pro-Familia Hospital in Rzeszow (Department of Endoscopic and Metabolic Surgery), during minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgeries. Another important value of this operating table is its great X-Ray Translucent area, which is useful during intraoperative X-Ray imaging.

I am deeply impressed with excellent cooperation with the team of constructors and engineers at Alvo, who actively responded to needs and remarks of our surgical Staff, offering solutions, which finally made up to a high clinical value product.

I take it as a real honor and feel satisfied from the fact that we could participate in the final phase of the market launch of this medical device.
