Alberto Rodríguez-Navarro, founder of Levita Magnetics, visits Fundación Ciencia & Vida


Alberto Rodríguez-Navarro, founder and CEO of Levita Magnetics, is a minimally invasive general surgeon with more than 10 years of clinical experience and publications in international journals, especially in the field of post-operatory pain.

In a Special Seminar to be held this Monday, November 28, he will present the history of his company to investigators and students at Fundación Ciencia & Vida.

Levita Magnetics is a medical device start up that develops innovative magnetic surgical platforms that serve as a catalyst in the continued evolution of less invasive surgery. The company was founded in Santiago, Chile, and later moved to Silicon Valley.

Recently, Levita introduced the First Magnetic Surgical Platform designed to magnetically retract and maneuver the gallbladder. This tool eliminates the need for a dedicated trocar and shafted instrumentation that may clutter the operative field during a reduced port laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedure.
