Magnamosis is a new surgical method that uses magnets to reconnect intestines. This new technique was recently developed and clinically tested by Dr. Michael Harrison at UC San Francisco. It uses two circular magnets to create the intestinal reconnection.
Current Intestinal Surgery VS Magnamosis
Currently, staples and sutures reconnect the intestinal tissues. This surgical technique is called anastomosis. Side effects include abdominal pain, infections, and lengthy recuperation time.
Dr. Harrison operated on five patients suffering from severe systemic disease. Magnet rings reconnected all segments. The surgeries were successful with no leaks, bleeding, or constriction. There were no complications during the 13 month follow up.
