Design in Mind

Sugita® and other Mizuho-designed products were developed in collaboration with the world’s leading neurosurgeons. This means they’re uniquely suited for the rigors and nuances of lengthy and complex procedures. Proven materials. Patented features. Precise engineering. They all converge to make Mizuho a more practical choice. You’ll find that Mizuho’s streamlined selection of microsurgical instrumentation (including endonasal), Sugita® aneurysm clips, fixation devices and tables provides innovative products for today’s surgical rigors.
