Pathy Medical produces high quality surgical illumination devices with the strategic goal of achieving greater surgical visualizations, lower costs, and easier to use alternatives to traditional forms of current surgical illumination. By focusing on products which are simple yet modern, Pathy Medical aims to change the mindset and improve the effectiveness of the surgeon and the facility.
The Company’s initial device on the market is the Light Jacket, a small, disposable device that slides onto the end of an electrocautery pencil. With its simple but sleek design, the Light Jacket provides bright, cordless, immediate, surgeon-directed light precisely where the surgeon is operating. No setup is required, unlike competitive illumination devices. Minimal heat is emitted and the directionality of the light is not reliant on an assistant. Using its patented technology, the Light Jacket can ease stress on the surgeon.
Surgeons have been operating with the same lighting tools for decades. Pathy Medical and its brighter innovation is finally here!
Pathy Medical products are engineered and manufactured in the USA.
Pathy Medical maintains a relentless commitment to quality and safety. Through our effective quality management system and our dedicated team, we will provide innovative solutions that exceed our customers’ needs, comply with applicable regulatory standards, and advance the state of patient care.

Dr. Vinod V. Pathy is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, educated at Yale University, and trained in New York City and Philadelphia.

Always on the cutting edge of technology, Dr. Pathy was the first surgeon in Connecticut to utilize the “gummy bear” silicone breast implant for reconstruction, and the first to utilize needle-free tissue expanders.

He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Pathy is also a Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the Connecticut Society of Plastic Surgeons.
