It all began in 1971, when company founder and CEO Ron Wallach decided he could build a better mousetrap. His invention of the first non-electric cryosurgical instrument in the basement of his home popularized cryosurgery. By using the recompressed refrigerant to warm the cryoprobe after freezing, Wallach was able to eliminate the electronic components that had made previous cryosurgical instruments bulky and prone to breakdowns.

Refinements of that primitive device led to his founding Cryomedics, a company that is now one of Wallach's competitors. When that company was
eventually sold to a large conglomerate, Rorer Group, Ron decided he would build
a new business from the ground up, using his expertise in medical engineering research and years of experience working with physicians. In 1980, he founded Wallach Surgical Devices, Inc,. with the help of just two coworkers.
