We Put Feeding Tube Removal in the Right Hands – YOURS.

“Many of my patients are older and frail. Unfortunately, it’s too easy for them to accidently pull their feeding tubes out. I need a solution that won’t jeopardize their health nor take me away from other patients who need me.”

  • Less spending on tube replacements and health complications1
  • Fewer patient emergency room visits1
  • More time for proactive patient care1

• According to a recent study, PEG pullouts cost more than $20,000 in additional health care charges not including individual physician charges, hospital days, transportation, and additional time and administrative costs associated with these events. 1

• The vast majority of PEG pullouts require an emergency department visit, a level 3 surgical consultation, a replacement gastrostomy tube and a radiographic confirmation of tube positioning. 1

• In early tube dislodgement, the stomach may separate from the abdominal wall and the open gastrostomy may leak gastric contents into the peritoneal cavity. 1
