Asymmetric Medical is a medical device startup developing unique surgical tools based on a revolutionary fiber design enabling intuitive, precise, and low energy surgery.


Our signature fiber was developed to facilitate safer, easier surgery using the unique ability of fiber optics to create a concentration of directed light capable of meeting a surgeon,s cutting needs while minimizing the effect on the surrounding tissue.



The workhorse of laparoscopic surgery, the Laser-Seal is the first laser based sealing and dissecting tool. It allows for easy, robust tissue and organ manipulation while bringing the unique benefits of the laser: speed, low energy use, and precision.



Robotic technology is changing the way surgeries are performed, enabling better access and consistent results. Combined with the superior precision of the Asymmetric Fiber technology, this advance is further improving patient care while opening-up new applications.



Asymmetric fiber technology makes the laparoscopic hook even better with increased precision energy emission, minimizing collateral damage and reducing complication rates.



Our generators are custom built medical lasers incorporating innovative diode technology for wavelength, power, and miniaturization.



Our core fiber technology lends itself to many new applications, see here to learn more.



To achieve our mission of freeing the surgeon, we choose to use light. The precision of laser technology, and therefore the benefits of using lasers in medicine, are clear. For this reason, laser technology is already prolific in aesthetics and ophthalmology, fields in which accuracy is key. Now, our technology brings these benefits to the operating room table.

Asymmetric Medical puts the surgeon at the centre: we believe that by designing our products with a tight focus on the surgeon, we can help doctors give better care to their patients. Our mission is to equip surgeons with the best tools, which are both accurate and intuitive, allowing them to focus their full attention on the patients. To accomplish this, we bring all the information and controls to the surgeon’s fingertips, keeping their attention on the patient.

Gynecology: Canine C- Section
By Asymmetric Medical | June 22, 2015

This Canine c-section was completed using a Laser-Hook. Canine c-sections, like any c-sections, are delicate operations. In addition to ensuring the health of the mother, the surgeon is responsible for the lives of multiple puppies. This video shows the precision with which the surgeon is able to perform this operation, using Asymmetric Medical's Laser-Hook. The Laser-Hook is ideal for procedures such as endometrial resections and myomectomies.
