ZSX Medical, a privately-held medical device development company focused on developing products to help surgeons do their job well, relocated from King of Prussia to The Navy Yard in Quarters M-2. ZSX Medical believes that making surgeons’ work easier will help patients, save hospitals money, and reduce overall healthcare costs.
The company is improving minimally invasive surgery with Zip-Stitch™, a simple, rapid, bio-absorbable internal closure system. Zip-Stitch™ is designed to simplify surgical closure to reduce time under anesthesia and surgical complications via an intuitive, easy-to-master platform. Their debut product, Zip-Stitch-H™, is expected to save 15-30 minutes in a typical laparoscopic hysterectomy, and products based on their technology are intended to accelerate closure in up to 5 million US and 25 million worldwide procedures.
The Navy Yard was the ideal option for their expansion because of its convenient location and its participation in the Keystone Innovation Zone program. “The presence of other start-ups, as well as Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania, creates a great atmosphere for a group of med tech entrepreneurs,” says President and CEO Dan Mazzucco. “Plus, you can’t beat the waterfront views!”
