3D-printed patient-matched implants and plates

Every personalized implant benefits from a high degree of design flexibility, assuring the best fit for you and your patient. A single large plate, multiple mini plates, or a porous implant​ assist you in performing your reconstruction.

Dedicated reconstruction module

With our personalized case intake and management software, you can benefit from a fully digitalized workflow featuring a dedicated reconstruction module.


Delivering flexibility with our range of high-quality solutions

Whether it’s a mandible, midface, or cranial vault reconstruction, our cranio-maxillofacial (CMF) solutions are tailored to your needs, regardless of the etiology or graft.

Accuracy, comfort, and speed

Our dedicated reconstruction module allows simple transfer to the OR for efficient surgical planning and adaptations, including backward planning, the incorporation of dental arches, and dental implant positioning.

Improve free fibula flap reconstruction

Virtual surgical planning improves reconstruction accuracy and provides significantly greater symmetry than the traditional freehand technique. It's notably superior for condyle positioning and complex reconstructions with multiple segments.​

Exceptional, personalized service

Collaborate with local clinically focused engineers throughout the planning process to get the best possible outcome and ensure your surgical preferences are taken into account. Partner with the same expert throughout the entire case.
