The vision of something unique
medical model of the century.
Customization is the breakthrough that is driving the medical industry of the future.
A better understanding of each individual and their pathologies because of increasingly precise diagnoses permits surgeons to steer a patient toward a more specific and individualized treatment. The singularity of each patient is analyzed in greater depth, so that the patient can then receive the personalized treatment with the highest chance of success. The medical world has been waiting for the arrival of customization in spinal surgery. With scientific progress in understanding sagittal balance and spinal injury, combined with the advent of new digital technologies, it is now possible to offer spinal patients entirely customized implants.
But to understand this complex field, to bring together and integrate all the puzzle pieces, it is necessary to commit to a complete process, blending R&D with the industrial dimension. To achieve this combination, a company has to bet on the future with a far-reaching vision. I am proud to say that we at Medicrea have done exactly that!
Customized spinal rods in 2013, morphologically adapted 3D implants in 2014 – with these innovations we proved our team is the industry leader in spinal surgery products and services. The UNiD concept of a fully customizable surgical rod represents a new era in our relationship with our clients: by forming a planning partnership with our surgeons, we can now offer them a combination of innovative products and complete services – for before, during and after spinal surgery.
We are a young business, but we are also bold, and we aim to see far into the future of the industry. We dream, but most of all, we act. We have our head in the stars, but our feet firmly planted on the ground.
Let’s continue to improve this field together and to honor our promise every day. (IM)PROVE!
If we can dream it, we can do it.
