NOVUSON is developing the UltraSTAT surgical system, the world's first Direct Therapeutic Ultrasound (DTU) surgical instrument platform for minimally invasive and open surgery; faster, more precise, safer, and more cost-effective than alternatives.

NOVUSON SURGICAL's UltraSTAT surgical instrument platform is designed for minimally invasive surgery, Vessel Sealing, Gynecology, Urology, Trauma, and other surgical specialties. Founded in 2014 by University of Washington Applied Physics Lab researchers, Novuson holds 7 granted US patents, and has developed functional prototypes of the first product systems to be built on the Novuson platform. Use of Novuson systems will deliver significant improvements to patient outcomes and hospital costs. Over 85 Swine Trials of the technology have confirmed superior performance. The company is now seeking investment funding to complete product development and FDA 510(k) clearance.

Novuson’s patented DTU technology represents the first substantive innovation in over 25 years for targeting vessel sealing / dividing, soft tissue ablation / hemostasis (bleeding control) in surgical and trauma applications. Existing solutions rely on transmission of electrical currents through the patient and are severely limited in speed, precision, and range of application. The Novuson DTU technology has been shown to rapidly and precisely ablate soft tissue from delicate, vital structures to 50mm thick organ cross-sections. These treatments are accomplished without collateral tissue damage and without electrical current in the patient. This level of performance is unprecedented and disruptive to its market. Beyond the initial product systems, the platform will enable multiple products for a broad range of additional applications.

The 2019 global TAM in this segment is projected to be over $8.8B USD. Year 5 of sales annual gross revenue of system plus disposables sales conservatively estimated at over $49M and more than 80% gross margin.
Direct sales to 24 strategically important luminary centers in 2020 Direct sales to 96 referred centers in 2021. Acquisition by major medical device manufacturer 2021
