“We make one product. We make a stapler. We wake up every morning. We go to sleep every night. One product. It better work. It better work not only well, but the best in the world.”
- Leon Amariglio, Founder and CEO
“It is very reassuring how Lexington has incorporated robotics and automation not only into manufacturing but also into the many quality checks to reduce human error. AEON’s gear allows for slow controlled movement and more complete tissue compression. The result is in the 300 cases I’ve used Lexington, I haven’t had any stomach serosal splitting. We’ve been using staplers for 20 years and nobody thought to incorporate a gear. This invention translates into a huge clinical difference."

"In pancreatic surgery, our unit has seen a three-fold reduction in pancreatic leak rate for lateral/distal pancreatectomy which has had a positive knock-on effect with a reduction in length-of-stay and morbidity of patients. We certainly consider it a superior product - the Rolls Royce for HPB surgeons.”

"In my experience, you get the whole package with Lexington Medical, proven by high quality products and responsiveness to surgeons’ needs. The AEON Endostapler has performed very well in nearly 200 thoracic surgeries - including complex lobectomies and segmentectomies - and when in my hands it undeniably feels like a well-engineered product."

"In over 1,300 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."

"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."

"The AEON endostapler works great. I and my three partners have completed over 1,000 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."
James Redmann, MD, FACSBariatric Surgeon at Surgical Specialists of Louisiana in Covington, LA. Medical Director at WhyWeight Clinic
"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."
