Our Mission

Collaborate with surgeons to provide the best in neurosurgical devices in order to advance surgical techniques and improve patient health.

Eighty-plus years of innovation and leadership

The world is shrinking. But the need for reliable, high-quality medical systems and solutions is expanding faster than ever. As this demand grows, so does Mizuho's global commitment to physicians, facilities and the patients they serve. Continuous collaboration with the world's leading surgeons and designers, coupled with aggressive R&D and product acquisition strategies, keep Mizuho on technology's leading edge, assuring continuous improvements in both product performance and patients' quality of life.

Design in Mind

Sugita® and other Mizuho-designed products were developed in collaboration with the world's leading neurosurgeons. This means they're uniquely suited for the rigors and nuances of lengthy and complex procedures. Proven materials. Patented features. Precise engineering. They all converge to make Mizuho a more practical choice. You'll find that Mizuho's streamlined selection of microsurgical instrumentation (including endonasal), Sugita® aneurysm clips, fixation devices and tables provides innovative products for today's surgical rigors.
