We have a history of innovation in hernia repair with products meeting the unique needs of both open and laparoscopic techniques and procedures from inguinal to ventral. Recent innovations include ReliaTack™ articulating reloadable fixation device, Symbotex™ composite mesh, ProGrip™ laparoscopic self-fixating mesh, Spacemaker™ Pro access and dissection system, and the Parietex™ composite ventral patch. We recently sold our one millionth piece of Parietex™ composite mesh, the procedural standard with more than 15 years of documented clinical and pre-clinical effectiveness. These products are expanding the frontiers of what’s possible in hernia repair.
