Vantage Surgical Solutions has announced the acquisition of Ophthalmic Surgical Solutions (OSS) in a press release.1

OSS is a Kansas-based company specializing in ophthalmic surgical equipment and services, and Vantage Surgical Solutions states the move “marks an important milestone in [their] growth strategy and further solidifies its position as a premier provider in the ophthalmic surgery industry.”1

Duana Kibbee, CEO of OSS will join the Vantage leadership team as Clinical Manager and discussed the move in the press release.1

“Vantage Surgical Solutions has been a constant in the ophthalmic space for many years,” said Kibbee. “I have found the two organizations to be extremely compatible and am excited about the synergies and scale that sharing resources and clinical adjacencies can offer our existing customers and the market in general. Based on the diligence process itself, I am confident the integration and combined go-to-market approach will be seamless.”

Bradley Hill, CEO of Vantage Surgical Solutions, also commented on the addition of Kibbee to the leadership team in the press release.1

“We are thrilled to welcome Duane and his highly successful organization, Ophthalmic Surgical Solutions, into the Vantage family and are excited about the geographical expansion this represents,” said Hill. “This acquisition aligns perfectly with our growth strategy and strengthens our commitment to delivering surgical innovations and exceptional services to the market. By combining our expertise and resources, we will be able to provide a wider range of solutions and deliver unparalleled value to rural health communities.”

Hill even stated the company will most likely be growing even more in the future, commenting “thanks to our partnership with Pharos Capital Group, we anticipate additional acquisitions that are focused on improving patient outcomes, increasing access to care, and/or lowering the cost of healthcare.”1

According to the companies, customers of OSS can expect a smooth transition as the integration takes place, with both companies stating plans to provide “uninterrupted service and support during this period of growth and expansion.”1

Vantage Surgical Solutions currently delivers cataract surgery equipment, IOLs, instrumentation, disposables, expert staff, and supplies to hospitals, surgery centers, and physicians.
