Based in Chepstow, Creo Medical is a medical device company focused on the specialist field of surgical endoscopy and its advanced technology and products are providing substantial benefits to the medical community.

By offering clinicians flexible, accurate and controlled endoscopic solutions, the company is at the forefront of a shift away from surgery and towards  safer, less-invasive and more cost-efficient treatment options

Who is Creo Medical?

Founded in 2003 by Professor Chris Hancock, the business initially looked at targeting the treatment of cancers through high frequency microwave energy and dynamic matching techniques.

The business strategy evolved to develop medical devices with wider applications and rebranded as Creo Medical in 2010. Today, they have a highly skilled, mutli-discipline workforce over 200, a range of devices for different indications and a portfolio of 376 patents granted and a further 870 patents pending for their innovative technology.

The company’s CROMA platform and flagship Speedboat Inject device are now in everyday use across the globe and their technology has recently attracted interest from two renowned robotics companies, Intuitive and CMR Surgical.
