Via Surgical

Via Surgical Ltd. provides next-generation fixation for hernia repair. Realizing that many hernia repairs make use of multiple means for mesh fixation — anchor/helical hernia tacks, manually applied transfascial sutures — Via Surgical has developed its FasTouch™ system to provide deployable transfascial suture fixation that is strong and consistent, yet easily and rapidly deployed. FasTouch, with its lightweight deployable sutures, provides a comprehensive fixation solution for hernia repair. The fixation strength of the sutures stems from the closed locked-loop suture concept. The minimal amount of material in the sutures may reduce foreign body response and chronic pain. Via Surgical was founded in 2012 by Lena and Ofek Levin and Arik Levy, an experienced team that is dedicated to improving and enhancing hernia repair. This same team previously founded and led PolyTouch Medical, developers of an advanced mesh-positioning device for greater accuracy and shorter procedure time.
