Health Value Creation is developing two surgical devices, a diagnostic tool and a trocar closure device. The first device helps prevent anastomotic leakages after bowel surgery by predicting the quality of the anastomosis during surgery, thereby reducing post-operative complications and lowering healthcare costs. The second device is a trocar closure device for faster, safer and more secure suturing after laparoscopic surgery, resulting in a reduction of the chances of wound herniation.
