Distractors and fixators
The insights which the Russian surgeon Gavril Ilizarov gained rather accidentally in the 1950s are standard knowledge today clinical practice would be unthinkable without it. More still: In many cases, distraction osteogenesis now represents the method of choice. With numerous innovative and revolutionary distraction systems, KLS Martin has made a major contribution to establishing this technique in craniomaxillofacial surgery for use in operating rooms all over the world. There is hardly any craniomaxillofacial problem to which we have not responded by designing a special distractor to solve it.
But we go beyond that: with new, innovative product details, we're helping to improve patient comfort, clinical safety, and enable users to master even the most complex challenges.
