Medical Devices

The professionals of Torreya Partners have been involved with a wide variety of companies and transactions in the medical devices area. We have deep expertise across the broad field of medical devices and associated technologies.

Past companies where we have had involvement either on transactions or as employees include: Alcon, Becton Dickinson, Covidien, Datascope, Fresenius, GE Healthcare, Guidant, Pall Corp, Stryker and Terumo.

The evolving healthcare landscape has profound implications for medical device companies. Changing rules for both reimbursement and cost pressures have been directly clashing with technological advances in fields such as robotic surgery.

We have structured our practice to facilitate transactions that create value both for our clients and for the system at large. For example, in 2010 we helped to partner an antimicrobial product to a global healthcare company in a transaction that has potential to reduce system costs while generating value for all involved. We continue to work in the antimicrobial area.

More recently, our work has involved devices in the cardiovascular, orthopedic and urologic areas.

We look forward to discussing how we can help to add value as an advisor to a medical device company where you are involved.
