What we do?

Welcome to the Helica Instruments web site. We are the inventors and manufacturers of the Helica TC, an electro-surgical device commonly known as the Helica, which in effect is a Helium Thermal Coagulator.


The key purpose of the Helica Thermal Coagulator (TC) is as an instrument to overcome the problems associated with electro surgical devices in laparoscopic surgery. When compared to other treatments available like Diathermy and Laser, the Helica TC treatment is highly accurate and it is safe to use on all areas affected, even the vital organs such as the bowel and the bladder. These areas are not normally treatable by the use of other instruments.


The Helica TC has been used to carry out over 60,000 operations in the UK, with great success & without a single surgical complication being reported. There are 170 centres throughout the UK who have chosen the Helica TC as their preferred option. Contact us to find your nearest centre.

Gynaecologists were the first of the surgical community to recognise the benefits of the Helica TC as a more efficient and safer alternative to Diathermy or Laser especially when treating endometriosis laparascopically.


Helica Instruments Ltd aims to keep developing new quality medical products that are safer and easier to use.
