Kapp Surgical Instrument Inc. is a world leading manufacturer of custom designed stainless steel surgical instruments and implants. It is among the fastest growing full service surgical design and supply firms in America. Kapp Surgical specializes in prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, and distributing new surgical products.
Kapp provides its international clientele with precision quality products and efficient service at the lowest possible cost. Karl Kapp, a master designer from Tuttlingen, Germany, started the firm in 1927. For over a half-century, physicians and hospitals across the globe commissioned him to design instruments for the most complicated surgeries. Kapp collaborated with surgeons at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in designing instruments for the pioneering open-heart operations of the 1960s.
The firm has expanded dramatically in recent years under Albert N. Santilli Ph.D., sole apprentice to Karl Kapp. With Al Santilli as owner and president, Kapp Surgical Instrument, Inc. continues to custom design instruments for many of the nation’s leading surgeons. Specialties include cardiovascular, peripheral-vascular, orthopedic, neuro, plastic, E.N.T., and general surgery.
