About MID, 30 Aug 2015 [cached]
With over 20 years of experience as a practicing laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Wayne Poll has had thorough experience in the frustrations of compromised vision during laparoscopic procedures for both traditional and robotic assisted surgeries. Through keen determination, foresight and true innovation, Dr. Poll has developed a very simple yet highly effective concept for a unique laparoscopic visualization system. Dr. Poll founded Minimally Invasive Devices, Inc. (MID) with an expressed goal of eliminating the need to ever remove the laparoscope for cleaning and defogging while substantially improving the consistency and clarity of visualization during laparoscopic procedures.

Additionally, he can now add winner of the first annual Excellence In Surgical Products Award to his credentials.

"The advent of HD ten years ago was the last breakthrough in laparoscopic vision," says Wayne Poll, M.D, FloShield inventor and CEO of MID. "FloShield represents the last hurdle in laparoscopic visualization."
The FloShield system, which received FDA 510(k) approval in 2008, is in early distribution within the U.S., and in use at approximately 40 hospitals throughout the country. The system was certified ISO 13485 compliant in December of 2010, clearing the path for CE Marking.
"We have been contacted by several European and Asian distributors who are interested in FloShield," says Poll.
FloShield is manufactured in Franklin, OH. Poll says the company has more than tripled employment over the last two years from four full time employees to 14.
