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 firing, with one continuous 23cm staple line resulting in a textbook curve gastric sleeve.
Cincinnati-based Standard Bariatrics, Inc., an emerging leader in the bariatric surgery medical device field, closed a debt facility on April 27, 2022, with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). The debt facility provides $7 million in term loans of which the first $4 million was funded at closing. The funding will be used to accelerate commercial efforts for the Titan SGS® surgical stapler and related proprietary medical devices designed for bariatric surgery.
Forrest Ringold, MD, FACS, FASMBS, was the first bariatric surgeon to use Titan SGS® in a robotic assisted sleeve gastrectomy in Alabama.
