The Problem

Surgical contamination is a constant threat.

The rate of contamination of 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 Surgical Contamination

Wound contamination is the root cause of incisional complications, yet after nearly a decade of national 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 complications. 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.
