Surgical Technologies Business Overview
FY2008 Global Revenue
Surgical Technologies accounted for $780 million, or 6%, of Medtronic's $13.5 billion in revenue in FY2008.
Surgical Technologies is our sixth-largest business. It provides high-quality, surgical instruments and information tools to these specialty areas:
Ear, Nose, Throat
Our products help surgeons provide relief to patients with conditions such as sinusitis, otitis media and Meniere's disease. Products include tissue-removal systems, microendoscopy instruments, implantable devices, nerve monitoring systems, disposable fluid-control products, and image-guided surgery systems.
By providing surgeons with high-quality visualisation systems and tools, we help them make informed decisions in the operating room, reduce surgery time, and reduce risk. Our systems deliver real-time feedback on patient anatomy, instrument position, pathology status, and therapy placement for both procedure planning and intraoperative confirmation.
