Teleflex, a US-based critical care and surgical devices provider, has acquired Eon Surgical, an Israeli-based company that has advanced a minimally invasive microlaparoscopy surgical platform technology meant to enhance surgeons’ ability to perform scarless surgery.
Microlaparoscopy or single incision surgery offers surgeons a mechanism to perform minimally invasive procedures without significant changes in technique.
This technology can be utilized for an entire procedure or as an adjunct to existing approaches that require extra access without adding to larger incisions and the related risks.
Teleflex chairman, president and CEO Benson Smith said, "This acquisition is consistent with our focus on innovative technologies and will greatly expand Teleflex’s offerings that address the significant market opportunity for minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures."
Eon Surgical CEO and co-founder Danny Farin said, "We are proud to be associated with a prestigious industry partner like Teleflex. This is a wonderful opportunity to accelerate the global expansion of our innovative platform, while providing the highest level of support to surgeons throughout the world."
The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
In May 2010, EON Surgical was founded under the auspices of the Rad BioMed Accelerator with the aim to become provider of solutions for next-generation scarless surgery.
