The Next Little Thing

minimallyinv_insetMinimally invasive medical devices have transformed surgical procedures by reducing incisions, shortening or eliminating hospital stays, speeding recovery times and improving overall patient outcomes. However, as these devices pack more tools and controls into increasingly compact architectures they are posing new challenges in design, engineering and manufacture.

The Cirtec Difference

Cirtec is one of the industry’s only end-to-end resources for turning minimally invasive surgical concepts into commercial realities. Our holistic approach to product development enables us to design, test, validate and manufacture all of the controls, electrical and mechanical parts within the most complex systems.
