Through its video surgery equipment, Confiance helps doctors perform minimally invasive surgeries that leave smaller scars and have quicker recoveries than traditional open surgeries. While video surgery is a relatively standard practice in US hospitals, only premier hospitals in Brazil can afford the equipment. Awarded High-Impact Company of the Year by Brazilian’s leading SMB magazine in 2013, Confiance dreams of closing the gap between the elite and second-tier hospitals by making video surgery accessible to a broader population.
