Giving Back

We strive to help support our local and global communities.

We believe in giving back, not only to the environment, our local community, hospitals and surgeons, but also to people in need around the world. 

Where Thompson Retractor Foundation Systems Go

We believe in assisting hospitals around the globe by donating refurbished Thompson Retractors, to make modern surgery available. The Thompson Retractor Foundation has made donations to missionary surgeons working all over the world.

Educational Donation Program

Thompson also donates to teaching hospitals and universities. Apply to receive a system for your teaching program.

We understand the importance of exposure during surgery as well as during surgical training. In an effort to support surgical education, we would like to partner with top universities and provide a Thompson Retractor at no cost to the Department of Surgery to be used for Physician Training.

When used in an educational setting, our retractors provide a better experience for students and residents. Our table-mounted retractors allow full concentration on the case, without the distraction of holding hand-held retractors in place.

There are a limited number of donations available each year. To be considered for a donation this year, please submit your application no later than June 30th.

Qualified recipients must be seeking a donation for the purpose of healthcare professional education.
