The Science Behind Titan SGS®

We developed the Titan SGS® through rigorous research to aid bariatric surgeons in achieving optimal gastric sleeve anatomy and improve patient outcomes. The result is a surgical stapler with the technology to complete a sleeve gastrectomy resection in one stapler firing1, with one continuous 23cm staple line1,2, resulting in a textbook curve gastric sleeve.

The Biodesign Story of Titan SGS®

From a full-length gastric clamp to the Titan SGS, a full-length gastric stapler, our medical device innovations are focused on making bariatric surgery significantly safer and more repeatable.

We launched in 2014 to work on meeting the unmet clinical needs surrounding sleeve gastrectomy pouch creation with the end goal to lower the intervention threshold for the surgical treatment of obesity.

UC Health doctor’s startup lands big investment

Standard Bariatrics, a Blue Ash startup founded by Dr. Jon Thompson of UC Health, has secured a $500,000 investment from the Dayton Development Coalition.

Thompson invented a medical stapler that could change how weight-loss surgery is performed, and the investment from the coalition’s Accelerant Fund I seed-stage venture fund will bring the total raised by Standard Bariatrics to more than $1.5 million by the end of this year.

Cincinnati Children’s pumps $6M into fund to launch startups

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center announced today that it will invest $6 million to create startup companies based on technology developed by its researchers.

The hospital, based in Avondale, found out last week that it will receive $3 million in funding from Ohio’s Third Frontier economic development initiative, and Cincinnati Children’s intends to match that three-year grant with $3 million of its own to create the Tomorrow Fund III.

Officials at Cincinnati Children’s haven’t decided which technologies will be tapped for early stage funding to launch companies, but the hospital expects to focus on new methods of addressing unmet medical needs – especially those involving rare pediatric conditions.
