About Allotrope Medical

We are a very small team that is working to bring a novel surgical device to market that will help surgeons decrease accidental injuries to ureters in the OR. We have developed a handheld, battery powered, single use device that is used by the surgeon to stimulate the ureter for quick and safe visualization.
