About Us

American Surgical Company® develops the innovative, single-use tools surgeons need to do what they do best: help their patients get better.

Every day, we are advancing the future of surgery worldwide with new, specialty devices that make it possible for surgeons to improve their performance. With every tool – however small it may be – our goal is to improve patients’ lives. Sometimes, it’s the tiniest things that make the biggest difference.

At ASC, we are proud of our deep expertise in small, absorbent patties. We started making products to meet the evolving needs of neurosurgeons more than 35 years ago.

At our manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Salem, Massachusetts, we set the pace for the future of surgery and health care.
