Get to Know Us

TeDan Surgical Innovations commits to providing innovative, high-quality surgical access systems designed to optimize exposure and improve the surgeon experience.

We specialize in retractor systems for spine, cardiothoracic, neurological and orthopedic surgeries. TSI guarantees that all of our products have been manufactured by skilled instrument craftsmen, using only quality materials.  Every effort is made to manufacture the finest quality surgical instruments at exacting specifications.


At TSI, we always have the end-user in mind when designing our products. We improve upon the market standard by offering product features that improve the ease-of-use and minimize continuous surgical disruptions:

Pivoting Retractors

The patented pivoting mechanism on our retractors allows each blade to pivot up to 30° after it has been placed inside the surgical site to increase visibility without increasing the incision size.  Pivot one or both arms, depending on surgeon preference.

Sure-Lock™ Side Loading

The Sure-Lock™ Retractors quickly, safely and easily connect retractor blades to the retractor body. Other locking retractors have protruding release switches which have been known to catch on gloves and break the sterile field.  The push-button release on the sure-lock system is low-profile, unobtrusive and safe to use with gloves.  The Sure-Lock™ will not release the blades if the button is pressed while the blades are under pressure, so there’s no chance of accidental release during the procedure.

Lighted Retractor Blades

Unique lighted blades provide direct illumination of the surgical site and eliminate the need for surgeon headlights. The light cable connects to our LED light source and fit directly into the retractor blades. Lighted blades are radiolucent and available in cervical spine, lumbar spine and cardiothoracic varieties.
