It’s Time to Make the MOVE

MOVE from the OR to the office and discover an alternative way to perform ENT procedures. Recommended by multiple professional standards agencies, office-based ENT procedures are a viable alternative to conventional OR-based techniques. 1 , 2

While the OR has been the main site for ENT procedures for many years, growing hospital backlogs have led to a demand for treatment approaches that can help ease the burden.​

With the use of innovative medical devices and software from Olympus, doctors may diagnose and treat patients in an outpatient environment, helping to clear the patient backlog, while also lowering hospital treatment costs, boosting efficiency and improving patient comfort. ​

Whether it’s to the office, an outpatient room or a private practice, now is the time to make the MOVE — and our unparalleled expertise, technology and experience are here to help.

MOVE for a Better Patient Experience

  • Reduce waiting times — moving out of the OR means your patients get access to treatment when they need it.
  • Eliminate the risks from general anesthesia — patients with high-risk co-morbidities can be treated in a local anesthesia.​ 3
  • Remove the need for hospital stays — patients can return home the same day. 4

Make a Safe MOVE

Maintain safe, quality care — office-based procedures have no additional or greater risk than when they are performed in the OR; instead, they result in fewer adverse effects, such as 6 , 7

  • Anesthesia-related complications.
  • Post-operative discomfort.
  • Intra- and post-operative bleeding.
  • Infection.

MOVE for Less

Go greener and reduce waste —​ from blankets to single-use gloves and packaging, not requiring general anesthesia for office-based procedures means fewer people involved and less waste per procedure.​
