Overview

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.

VersaOne™

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

SONICISION™ CURVED JAW CORDLESS ULTRASONIC DISSECTION SYSTEM

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.

ERAS®

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.
