History of Caldera Medical
In 2002, Caldera Medical was founded to bring differentiated technology to an emerging market.

While large multinational corporations dominate the medical device industry, Caldera Medical foresaw an opportunity in the female pelvic health arena to form close relationships with surgeons and to build a company around this principle. Surgeon relationships continue to be the company touchstone, inspiring us to make life better® for surgeons, the facilities that they operate at, and the patients they care for.
