Laserscope Launches Web Site:

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BW HealthWire)--Sept. 17, 1997--Laserscope (NASDAQ:LSCP) today announced that it has launched a Web Site designed for customers, physicians, medical consumers, and the general public.

The site can be accessed via the World Wide Web address:

Background information on the company, recent press announcements, SEC filings, product descriptions and photos are included in the site, as well as special sections for physicians and medical equipment planners.

Three sections are devoted to consumer information, including useful information on leg and facial vein treatment, wrinkle removal, and treatment of chronic bladder syndrome, a urological condition that some estimates say could affect more than 5 million women in the U.S. annually.

The site can also be accessed through searches on such topics as leg vein treatment, urethral syndrome, wrinkle removal, chronic bladder syndrome, esophageal cancer, new cancer treatment, and others.

"The Laserscope Web Site is another vehicle in our overall effort to further strengthen our relationship with our customers as well as communicate more effectively about our business," said Robert V. McCormick, Laserscope President and CEO. "We also expect the consumer-oriented sections to benefit those seeking timely information on surgical and cosmetic laser treatments."

Laserscope designs, manufactures, sells and services on a worldwide basis an advanced line of medical laser systems and related energy delivery devices for the office, outpatient surgical center and hospital markets. In addition, Laserscope's Ascent Medical Systems(TM) (AMS) provide innovative, custom equipment solutions for surgical suites and medical treatment rooms.

Statements in this announcement about future results are preliminary and based on partial information and assumptions. Except for the historical information presented, the matters discussed in this announcement contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including the timely introduction and market acceptance of new products and procedures such as those described herein, the development and rate of growth of new markets and treatments, the impact of competitive products and technologies, consumer acceptance of and demand for the medical procedures targeted by the company, and other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's public disclosure filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
