The goal of the ReSuture team is to reimagine surgical training so that surgeons are as prepared as possible before entering the operating room. As trained biomedical engineers, the founding team believes it is our responsibility to leverage innovative technologies to improve the quality of human life. To reduce the burden of surgical complications, our team has dedicated themselves to solving the biggest problems of surgical training today.
