Better outcomes by design


The right surgical table can transform complex surgeries by increasing patient safety, reducing physician fatigue, accelerating surgeries and speeding up patient recovery. We’re constantly working to design more effective surgery tables and pressure management solutions that remain the cornerstones of hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers around the world.

Our story


Founded in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mizuho OSI began developing the specialty surgical solution space in 1978. We spent the next four decades collaborating with surgeons and healthcare providers to understand today’s surgical needs, uncover problems and inefficiencies in the operating room and develop products that simplify procedures, improve precision, reduce risk and improve outcomes for all.

Mizuho OSI is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a leading surgical table manufacturer Mizuho Corporation, founded in 1919 and headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
