SITONA supports the development of new methods and materials for use in the fields of traumatology, orthopaedics and neurosurgery. One of the most recent successes that will help extend modern treatment methods is the development of implants made from carbon/PEEK.
Carbon/PEEK has for more than 20 years been a tried-and-tested and clinically proven material that delivers remarkable benefits in the fields of orthopaedics and neurosurgery. Products made from carbon/PEEK are continuously being launched for new fields of application. One outstanding example is an X-ray-transparent pedicle screw system made from the material that literally reveals new insights into the medical situation at hand.
Such developments are being advanced and introduced by surgeons. SITONA provides the structure and support that allows these new developments to be implemented.
