NewGen Surgical was started in 2012 with a vision that we could design quality single-use medical devices with sustainable materials.
Smart Sustainable Design™
PERFORMANCE, ECONOMIC VALUE and SUSTAINABILITY drive Smart Sustainable Design™.
Our development process begins with a thorough understanding of the clinical performance doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals expect from a medical device. By rethinking, redesigning and reimagining a surgical product used every day in the operating room, we can use sustainable material to reduce or eliminate plastic waste – and still deliver clinical performance at a price that brings value to our customers.
Our first product – the NGS35W Skin Stapler – is a good example of our design process. We spent over two years designing around sustainable materials, with a focus on clinical performance and supply chain consideration, to deliver economic value to our customers and a significant reduction in plastic waste.
“Much like the healthcare industry’s emphasis treating root cause by focusing on wellness and prevention for people, NewGen Surgical is doing the same. By examining and redesigning products with more sustainable materials on the front end, we achieve a source reduction of plastic used and a reduction of end-of-life plastic pollution in the environment,” said Rob Chase, Founder and President.
