NUA Surgical

Innovating In Women’s Health

NUA Surgical is an award-winning start-up dedicated to innovating in women’s health. The HPSU company was founded in 2019 and is a spinout of BioInnovate Ireland and NUI Galway. The unmet need tackled by NUA Surgical relates to birth by Caesarean Section (C-Section). A consequence of the global obesity epidemic is that many of the 29 million C-sections performed each year face a major challenge in that exposure of the uterus is obstructed by excess abdominal tissue. This often leads to longer surgeries with a higher rate of infant and maternal complications. 

NUA Surgical has developed the SteriCISIONTM C-Section Retractor, a device ergonomically designed for the obstetrician and their assistant, allowing hands-free unobstructed access to the uterus and delivering safer outcomes for mother and baby. The pre-revenue company has achieved multiple accolades including Intertrade Ireland Seedcorn Winner 2020, EIT Health Headstart winner 2020, and Parkview Health ‘Global Maternal Health Innovation Competition’ winner 2021.
