A new and innovative way to improve patients’ recoveries following colorectal surgery.
An innovative solution for the protection of digestive anastomosis.
Colovac is a colorectal anastomosis protection device designed to reduce the contact of fecal content at the anastomotic site following colorectal surgery.
Established in 2015 and based in France, SafeHeal is a clinical stage medical device manufacturer. Specializing in the development of anastomosis protection devices for colorectal surgery, SafeHeal’s premier device, Colovac, was invented to eliminate the need for diverting ostomies in patients undergoing colectomy.
Leading colorectal surgeons are talking about the benefits of Colovac.
Dr. Antonio D’Urso
Digestive surgery and bariatric at Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg, France
"In order to always improve the quality of life of our patients, our hospital has agreed to be part of the clinical study. I am a huge advocate of the Colovac: it enables avoidance of diverting stoma, it is minimally invasive and fully reversible at any time."
Prof. Jérémie Lefevre
General Surgery at Hôpital Saint-Antoine, Paris-France
“The preliminary clinical trial results indicate that Colovac is an alternative to ileostomy, obviating the burden of stoma care for patients with a rectal cancer.”
Dr. Patricia Sylla
Colon and Rectal Surgery at Mount Sinai, New York-USA
"There is a clinical need, Colovac’s approaching the problem from a different angle. For the patient, there is an immediate added value: avoiding an ostomy, it is an added value, no matter what."
