Design Innovation

Zip-stitch is a breakthrough surgical closure platform with a focus on women’s health, designed specifically for closing internal surgical incisions in laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Zip-stitch simplifies cuff closure by approximating the wound and maintaining closure through the healing process without puncturing tissue. This is done with a series of bio-absorbable clips deployed using a laparoscopic applicator tool.

Zip-stitch is designed to be simple and intuitive, achieve a superior closure compared to sutures, and save time and money. This technology has been validated by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, which have provided funding to develop Zip-stitch.


Zip-stitch completed a successful initial clinical trial in Monterrey, Mexico, and is now in the midst of a pivotal clinical trial in the United States. Doctors interested in participating can learn more information here. Patients can learn more here.
