The company leverages its technology platforms to develop new innovative solutions in surgery for a positive impact on patients' lives. The company is headquartered in Paris, with a production facility in Roncq (near Lille) and an office in Boston.

Tissium's technology is based on research and intellectual property from the laboratories of Professor Robert Langer (MIT) and Professor Jeffrey M. Karp (Brigham and Women's Hospital), who co-founded the company.

Tissium is developing surgical polymers for tissue repair during surgical procedures based on its proprietary, elastomeric, biodegradable, biocompatible polymers for in situ wound closure, in the presence of blood during surgery and tissue reconstruction.
