B. Braun Melsungen celebrated Aesculap anniversary in 2017
Last year, B. Braun Melsungen AG was celebrating the 150th anniversary of its world-renowned surgical division.
Who would have thought in 1867 that people who had previously been unable to walk would regain their mobility thanks to artificial joints? That with the help of high-precision micro instruments, virtuoso clips could be placed inside the human brain to prevent life-threatening bleeding there? That doctors would be able to operate three-dimensionally in their patients' bodies with the aid of ultra-modern cameras? Or that surgeons would be able to navigate through the anatomy of their patients in a computer-assisted manner? The history of surgery is a history of positive border crossing. For over 150 years, Aesculap has been pushing forward the dynamics of this acquisition of knowledge with its innovative solutions.
Aesculap, focuses on products and services for core processes in surgery
The product range includes among other items surgical instruments for open or minimally invasive approaches, implants (e.g. for orthopaedics, neurosurgery and spinal surgery), surgical sutures, sterile container, storage, motor and navigation systems as well as products for cardiology. The division also actively exchanges knowledge through its international service network and its numerous continuing education programs at the Aesculap Academy.
