Cincinnati-based Standard Bariatrics Inc., has developed the Titan SGS, a first-of-its-kind design that offers surgeons performing sleeve gastrectomy, the top bariatric surgical procedure for obesity disease, the industry's longest continuous staple cutline of 23 centimeters.1
"U.S. Venture Partners is excited to join the team at Standard Bariatrics as they seek to transform the way bariatric surgery is delivered and improve patient outcomes," said Casey Tansey, general partner at U.S. Venture Partners.
Standard Bariatrics is responding to the growing global obesity epidemic through the development of device solutions designed to enable surgeons to deliver more consistent and repeatable surgical outcomes. In April of 2021, the company's Titan SGS stapler received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)2 allowing the device to be used in bariatric surgery requiring the creation of sleeve pouch anatomy (sleeve gastrectomy). The submission was supported by the completion of a successful 62-patient study.
Standard Bariatrics CEO Matt Sokany said, "We are thrilled to have received clearance from the FDA in April of 2021 for our Titan SGS stapler. Now, completing Series B financing immediately following FDA clearance gives us the needed capital to scale our commercialization plans for the solutions we offer surgeons for use in sleeve gastrectomy and to continue developing our technology platforms."
