Who We Are

There remains a significant worldwide unmet need for less invasive surgical options for patients struggling with Obesity, Type 2 diabetes, or undergoing colorectal surgery. At GI Windows Surgical, we are engineering the first fundamental breakthrough in surgical anastomotic technology that allows for less invasive surgery for both surgeons and patients.


The team is comprised of experienced individuals who have successfully demonstrated cross-functional expertise to bring paradigm-changing medical technologies to market.

The GI Windows magnets are the first ones capable of creating a compression anastomosis, which, with the help of a common flexible endoscope in a mini-invasive way, could be performed anywhere in the digestive tract accessible by endoscopy. It generates a wide, permanent anastomosis of incredible technical simplicity. This has the potential to change the way we will perform digestive surgery in a not too distant future.
