Our Story

In 1997 MicroVention was founded and incorporated in a small facility in Southern California

We are a worldwide community of over 2000 engineers, chemists, marketers, manufacturers, researchers, and innovators who share the same ethos — creating technologies that provide a meaningful improvement in patient lives.

From the beginning, we sought to develop and market medical devices that would improve the treatment of diseases in small blood vessels. After developing some early concepts and prototypes, our company narrowed its focus to aneurysm therapy, developing a line of implantable, detachable neuroendovascular platinum coils.

In 2006, we were acquired by the Japan-based Terumo® Corporation. Terumo provided the framework for MicroVention to operate autonomously and grow freely. Today, we have launched over 30 products and have expanded beyond cerebral aneurysms, to include treatment for ischemic stroke, carotid artery disease, and neurovascular malformations.

Our Community

MicroVention’s headquarters is located in Aliso Viejo, California, right off the 73 Freeway in the heart of Orange County—a key business hub between Los Angeles and San Diego.

In addition, Orange County’s natural landscape provides endless opportunities for exploration. Whether it’s a bonfire at the beach or access to the local mountains, you will find countless opportunities for adventure.
