Research & Development

Innovation at the core

Fortimedix Surgical is committed to driving the evolution of minimally invasive surgery through smart innovation across surgical specialties. As a technology-driven company dedicated to improving the quality of life of patients throughout the world we identify and address unmet needs in human healthcare, a strategy that is well-integrated into our research and development approach.

The symphonX™ Surgical Platform is our first commercial platform for minimally invasive surgery, and is FDA cleared for use in abdominal laparoscopic surgery. Beyond the initial focus on general surgery, the recently launched shorter version of the symphonX™ Instruments portfolio has been used during several gynecologic procedures including tubal sterilization and ovarian cyst treatment with positive results, confirming the versatility of the platform across surgical specialties.

Upcoming developments

Under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Karl-Hermann Fuchs, one of our Scientific Advisory Board members, we are developing a surgical solution for less invasive transanal colon resection (TaCR). Together with his son, Dr. Hans F. Fuchs, several cadaver and dry lab studies were performed with a modified version of the symphonX™ Surgical Platform. These results were presented as part of the Emerging Technology Session of the SAGES 2016 Annual Meeting in Boston (March 2016) and the Amazing Technology Session of the 25th International Congress of the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) in Frankfurt am Main (June 2017) by Dr. Hans F. Fuchs, and during the American Society For Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) NOSCAR Summit in Downers Grove (July 2017) by Dr. Karl-Hermann Fuchs.
