For decades, surgeons have relied on scalpels to cut skin anddelicate tissues and on electrosurgical devices to cut and coagulatefat and other thicker, tougher tissues. �e inherent tradeoﬀ isthat scalpels cut very precisely but do not control bleeding, whileelectrosurgical devices cut and control bleeding but damagesurrounding tissue. PEAK’s technology bridges this gap by providingthe beneﬁts of both approaches.PEAK Surgical’s next-generation tissue dissection system hasdistinct advantages over today’s prevailing surgical instruments.�e company’s unique technology enables ultra-precise tissuedissection and coagulation while signiﬁcantly minimizing thermalspread and collateral tissue damage. �is unparalleled combinationprovides signiﬁcant beneﬁts for both surgeons and patients.�e company’s ﬂagship product, the PEAK Surgery System,balances a power source—the PULSAR Generator
—with a seriesof disposable devices—the PEAK PlasmaBlades
—to address abroad range of surgical applications.PEAK’s pulsed plasma and electrode insulation technologies wereoriginally developed at Stanford University. PEAK Surgical, Inc.now has the worldwide rights to apply these technologies to allsurgical ﬁelds.
“With the PlasmaBlade, tissue looks healthier, withno char. �e thermal damage we typically see withtraditional tools has been eliminated.”Kai Ihnken, M.D., Cardiothoracic Surgery Valley Medical Center, San Jose, CA

PEAK Technology Overview
�e PEAK Surgery System strikes a unique balance between precisecutting and bleeding control.PEAK’s pulsed plasma technology enables surgeons to cut straightthrough from skin to fat to muscle, while dialing in the desired degreeof coagulation and controlling collateral tissue damage.With a single system, you can:
any type of tissue
the amount of
to the target tissue—eﬀectively minimizing thermal damage.As a result, you get unparalleled control and procedure eﬃciency.Preclinical studies
Stronger wound healing
Increased cutting speed and precision
Signiﬁcant bleeding control
A New Kind of Balancing Act
PEAK’s technology balances a
powerful, pulsed plasma generator
highly insulated electrodes
on a handheld device.“�e PEAK Surgical System represents a quantum leap in technology.It cuts like a knife with minimal scarring and collateral damage.And it eliminates the time and confusion from using two separateinstruments to precisely cut delicate tissues and to control bleeding.”�omas Krummel, MD, Professor and Chair of Surgery,Stanford University Medical School
�e PEAK PlasmaBlade oﬀers you the closest thing to an optimal cut:
Precision. Bleeding control. Low thermal damage.
