Needs led innovation

A baby born following Caesarean Delivery

Tackling True Unmet Clinical Needs

The unmet clinical needs being pursued by NUA Surgical were identified during the BioInnovate Ireland Fellowship. Validated by clinicians around the globe, our innovative solutions are designed with all key stakeholders in mind.  Our inaugural surgical device is focusing on caesarean section (C-Section) and tackles multiple unmet needs of obstetricians.  


Medical Challenges

There are many challenges facing obstetricians when performing a caesarean delivery. The safety of mother and baby are of utmost importance. Our goal is to reduce the risk of surgical complications by providing user friendly technologically advanced medical devices.
