We have some exciting news to share: Our company, Cardica, is changing its name. Beginning June 20, 2016 we will be called Dextera Surgical.
We are entering a new and exciting chapter for our growing company. Thirteen years ago, we introduced our first automated anastomosis systems for use in cardiac surgery under our original name, Cardica, which reflected the focus of our business at the time. These products continue to perform well and remain the only automated anastomosis devices for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery on the market today.
Today, our company has built on that heritage of innovation with a broader portfolio of products that are helping to advance minimally invasive surgery around the world. Our newest technology, the MicroCutter 5/80 stapler, is the smallest and most maneuverable surgical stapling device on the market today, and is making an impact for patients across a wide variety of clinical applications – from lung surgery to pediatric procedures and beyond.
We have a new management team in place, a broadened focus and a clear vision forward. We have evolved as a company and we thought it was time our name did too.
We have been planning for our new brand for months and are thrilled to be able to introduce it to you now. The name Dextera is inspired by the word dexterity, which emphasizes skill, expertise, agility and finesse – qualities we see in our employees, our products and the surgeons who are advancing minimally invasive surgery every day.
We are excited about our company’s future and we can’t wait to show you what’s next. Welcome to Dextera Surgical!
President & CEO, Dextera Surgical
