Fred Moll, a well-known innovator in the field of surgical instruments, came to Owl with an idea that would foster in modern general laparoscopic surgery. The idea was the safety trocar. Owl took Fred’s idea and produced the first Proof of Concept safety trocars which were used in the original animal studies and served as a means to raise significant funding for Endotheraputics. The safety trocar is now an industry standard and a multi-million dollar annual business. Owl is named on the original patents for this game changing innovation.
