Minimal access surgery, a technique that has gained remarkable momentum over the last two decades, is now considered the gold standard for performing surgeries across various medical specialties. Clinicians have witnessed a surge in technological advancements enhancing surgical precision and patient outcomes. However, suturing within the realm of MAS has been relatively untouched by specialized development, often relying heavily on the skills of practicing surgeons.

This is another great addition to our robust and dynamic product portfolio in the wound closure segment.

TRUMASTM is a cutting-edge range of sutures meticulously designed to address challenges faced during suturing in minimal access surgeries with conventional sutures. By blending surgical expertise with innovative technology, we at Healthium aim to empower surgeons to deliver better outcomes and enhance patient care.”

Leveraging its position as one of the world’s largest suture manufacturers and the largest surgical needle producer by volume, Healthium’s dedicated R&D, design and engineering teams have transformed insightful ideas and expert suggestions into a tangible solution – TRUMASTM.
