Surgeon Leaning Over OR Table in Operating Room

Advancing Healthcare through Innovation & Excellence

About Us

BiPAD® Surgical is dedicated to developing technologies that help surgeons and their staff perform procedures more safely, with decreased burden and with better outcomes.


We believe that innovative solutions that improve ergonomics reduce risk and enhance surgeons' ability to heal. 

BiPAD® is the first practical hand switch for bipolar forceps electrocautery. BiPAD® is a transformative device that solves a seventy-year-old problem by putting control of the most accurate form of diathermy in the surgeons hands. The monopolar hand-switching pencil made monopolar foot pedals became obsolete in the 1960’s. Laparascopic hand controls made laparoscopic diathermy foot pedals obsolete by 2012. Now, finally, starting in 2020, BiPAD® sets the stage for the obsolescence of bipolar forceps foot pedals.

Our Mission

To replace every footpedal in
the hospital with BiPAD®.

To create innovative solutions that enhance the ability of surgeons to heal.

Our mission is to enhance surgical procedures through the application of biomedical engineering and technology. We strive for excellence in product reliability, quality, and service, while recognizing the personal worth of our employees and continuously building on our strengths in areas of unique contribution. We listen to the needs of surgeons and healthcare professionals to develop innovative solutions that delight our customers.

The Story behind BiPAD® Surgical

A Revolutionary Solution for Surgeons

by Dr. Louis G. Cornacchia, III


BiPAD® was born out of a difficult surgery in 2013. A young, morbidly obese patient required surgery for a grade I-II spondylolisthesis, but due to his size, the surgery took longer than usual. During the surgery, the bipolar foot pedal repeatedly fell off the foot stand, causing delays and forcing the nurse to crawl under the table to fix it. The surgeon realized that this was a common problem and decided to create a solution.

The following morning, the surgeon came up with the idea of mounting a hand switch on the forceps connector. He developed an early prototype and made over 60 iterations and design modifications over the next five years to ensure the device would work with any forceps, generator, and hand morphology.

The result was BiPAD®, a device that allows surgeons to control hemorrhage without having to stare down at the floor to find the bipolar forceps. Nurses and staff no longer have to crawl under the operating table to fix the foot pedal, reducing the risk of infections. Moreover, BiPAD® promotes the use of bipolar forceps electrosurgery over monopolar electrosurgery, which is less safe and efficient.

The surgeon spent years developing BiPAD® because he believed that nurses and staff should never have to crawl under the operating table, and surgeons should be able to achieve hemostasis safely and efficiently. BiPAD® continues to evolve, ensuring that it meets all clinical and business case requirements.
