AJAX, ON, July 18, 2018 – Surgical Staplers are used in surgical procedures in place of sutures to close tissue in surgical wounds. The use of staples over sutures reduces local inflammatory response, width of the wound, and the time it takes to close. This reduces patient tissue trauma by minimizing tissue handling and heals as reliably as conventional sutures.
Up until now, Canada’s open and laparoscopic surgical stapler market has had only two Health Canada licensed stapler suppliers, Medtronic and Johnson & Johnson / Ethicon Endo-Surgery, who have both providing products with small variances in selection and value, to patients, surgeons, surgical teams, hospitals and healthcare payers.
Ontario based Panther Medical Canada Inc. has obtained Health Canada License for the Panther® line of open and endoscopic surgical staplers and plans to deliver increased competition and significant value and savings into this duopoly market and thereby help Canadian Healthcare Providers and Payers by delivering high levels of quality, service and missing economic value to the surgical community.
Panther Medical Canada offers a full range high quality surgical stapling products as used in Gastric, Digestive, Bariatric, Esophageal, Pancreatic, Gynecological and Thoracic surgical procedures, and plans to invest in Canadian robust surgical team training and surgical procedure research and development activities. By partnering with Canadian surgeons, nurses, researchers and payers in training, innovation, research and development and by delivering millions of dollars in missing economic value and efficiencies back to Canadian Healthcare Payers, Panther Medical Canada will improve the lives and the economic relief of Canada’s health system and tax payers.
