Urolgoists were impressed by the outstanding results reported by the first Magna users.

The new Doctors Hospital in Monterrey, Mexico, is the largest private hospital in Latin America and is a center of excellence with medical equipment of cutting-edge technology.  After exploring all avenues, Doctors Hospital has chosen the Duet Magna, with its unique dual shockwaves, as the most advanced shockwave lithotripter to offer optimal service for their patients. Duet Magna splits the energy between two reflectors, achieving excellent stone fragmentation results while drastically reducing kidney damage.

Doctors Office Hospital La Oca is a longtime customer of Direx de Mexico.  Due to positive results of treatment and excellent service by Direx de Mexico, the Duet Magna from DirexGroup was a natural choice for the new Hospital.

DARTFORD, ENGLAND – Three years ago, Darent Valley Hospital added lithotripsy treatments through a partnership with DirexGroup, with European headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany, to serve those patients suffering from kidney stones.  After an upgrade to the newest Direx, dual head, electromagnetic Duet Magna lithotripter, Darent Valley Hospital has elected to continue and expand on their relationship with Direx hoping to treat a larger number of patients in the years ahead.  “We have been very pleased with the equipment and service received from Direx," stated Alex Tan, Director of Surgical Services for Darent Valley Hospital. “We expect our patient volume for this treatment service to continue to grow and we needed the right equipment in place to do so.”  Darent Valley Hospital uses the Duet Magna lithotripter from Direx, the only dual head shockwave lithotripsy system on the market.  “The dual head approach allows us to treat patients more effectively and with less discomfort than other lithotripters on the market,” stated Mr Sriprasad, urological surgeon at Darent Valley. “We plan also to add an ultrasound unit which will allow us to treat additional patients.  We have been very pleased with the fragmentation results we have achieved with the Duet Magna over the past three years.”   The Duet Magna is a favored lithotripter in the industry as it allows for great flexibility.  Hospitals can use existing C-arms for xray imaging or purchase the C-arm of their choice.  This is also true of treatment tables, as Magna works with most tables on the market today.  The dual head feature has been shown to significantly reduce kidney damage while increasing the effectiveness of stone fragmentation. “Darent Valley is a very progressive hospital and a strong reference site for our company in the United Kingdom”, reported Niv Ein-Gal, Chief Operating Officer for DirexGroup. “They provide a perfect setting for our equipment as they are always looking for ways to improve their treatment environment for their patients.  We look forward to our extended contract with Darent Valley Hospital and look to expand to other UK hospitals.”
