Zero tolerance for surgical site infection?
You've come to the right place.

We work with hospital leaders who refuse to accept
that surgical site infection is an inevitable outcome
in patients undergoing high risk abdominal surgery

The Problem

SSI is a constant threat.

The rate of infection at the incision site can be as high as 15 to 30 percent1-5 in certain high-risk, clean-contaminated, and contaminated procedures such as colorectal surgery.

Our Answer

Targeting the Root Cause of SSI

Wound contamination is the root cause of SSI, yet after nearly a decade of national SSI focus, hospital teams still struggle to gain control over this pervasive, invisible threat. Surgical technologies have not evolved to adequately eliminate contamination, leaving patients vulnerable to infection. Our approach is CleanCision, a first-in-class, advanced technology that continuously clears harmful bacteria from the incision, combining wound protection and irrigation into an intuitive and easy-to-use retraction system that has been shown to reduce SSI risk by 61 percent. 6
