SafeStitch Medical, Inc. operates as a developmental stage FDA-registered medical device company, which is focused on the development of medical devices that manipulate tissues for the treatment of obesity, gastroesophageal reflux disease, hernia formation, esophageal obstructions, Barrett's Esophagus, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and other intraperitoneal abnormalities through endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery. It products include AMID Stapler, SMART Dilator, and standard and airway bite blocks. AMID Stapler is used to fix mesh in place, which helps prevent the recurrence of a hernia. SMART Dilators are used when an endoscopy demonstrates the narrowing of the esophagus. The bite blocks are used to protect the endoscope used in transoral gastrointestinal procedures and are required in all such procedures. SafeStitch Medical was founded by Charles J. Filip and Jeffrey G. Spragens in August 1988 and is headquartered in Miami, FL.
