At SOMAVAC Medical, we are creating a medical device to help patients recover with dignity at home after major surgeries like mastectomies. Postop drains are a key part of surgical recovery, especially at home, and yet they've seen less improvement than an elbow brace. This is why we listened to surgeons, patients, caregivers, hospitalists and designed a solution that meets everyone's needs.
"In 2004, I remember being in the middle of a very busy season of graduations and celebrations in my household and wanting to be part of the festivities however I found myself sidelined by the maintenance of these difficult drains. I couldn't be happier to be part of what I believe will revolutionize the way women recover from breast cancer surgery."
