Company Summary

ZSX is reinventing surgical closure with the Zip-Stitch rapid surgical closure platform. Our debut product closes the vaginal cuff in laparoscopic hysterectomy (Hx). Many surgeons need 15-30 minutes to close the cuff and most adverse events are due to poor closure. Zip-stitch closes the cuff easily in 4 minutes and does so perfectly; accelerating healing and easing the burdens of doctors, hospitals and the 600,000 US women who seek Hx each year.
