Peri-Operative Solutions

Medtronic’s unrivalled portfolio of products makes us a leader in the field of bariatric & metabolic surgery.

Developed in partnership with health care professionals, our innovative technologies produce consistent and reliable performance, even in the most challenging cases.

At the heart of this - our long history of manufacturing & supplying quality products, and our commitment to developing meaningful and economically beneficial solutions.


Thanks to our long-standing partnership with hospitals, we know it can be hard to provide quality services with a tight budget. We create innovative products to simplify your workflow and make your procedures more time- and cost-efficient. 

Introducing the VersaOne™ access system – an easy-to-use, universal trocar platform that gives you the performance, choice, peace of mind and consistency that you asked for, all in one simple solution. 

ReliaCatch™ bag

Surgeons told us they needed a specimen retrieval bag that’s strong, easy-to-use, and reliable. We responded with a system that meets those expectations — and more.

Our ReliaCatch™ specimen retrieval bag was designed to bring peace of mind to the OR. That means it’s exceptionally strong — and simple to use.1-3


When we invented the cordless ultrasonic dissector, we wanted to provide surgeons with more freedom of movement during their procedures§ — and a safer OR.4

LigaSure™ Retractable L-hook Laparoscopic Sealer/Divider

In your hands, our energy solutions have been setting the standard of patient care for nearly 50 years. But the challenges of today’s healthcare system demand we go further — with technologies that bring even greater efficiency to procedures.

That’s why we created the LigaSure™ retractable L-hook laparoscopic instrument. The functionality of five laparoscopic devices come together in one versatile instrument — with the reliable performance of LigaSure™ technology and Valleylab™ monopolar energy.5

Signia™ Intelligent Stapling System

Tissue varies but your staple lines shouldn’t. That's why the Signia™ stapling system delivers consistent staple lines6,7 — across variable tissue — and the benefits they bring to patients.

The world’s first smart stapler, the Signia™ system combines the proven performance of Tri-Staple™ technology with the power of real-time feedback. Our reposable handle also gives you the precision of fully powered rotation, articulation, and firing8 with one hand.9

V-Loc™ Secure Absorbable & non-Absorbable Wound Closure

The V-Loc™ wound closure device is a revolutionary technology that eliminates the need to tie knots, so you can close incisions up to 50% faster without compromising strength and security.10,11

Designed for secure, fast, and effective12,13 incision closure for your patients.

Tri-Staple™ Technology

Tri-Staple™ technology reloads are designed to work in harmony with the natural properties of tissue to optimize performance before, during and after stapling.


Improves outcomes and enhances patient experience

Our aspiration and strategy is to build partnerships with healthcare stakeholders with joint accountability to deliver outcomes based value in healthcare.
