Dr. Murakoshi at Nagayama Hospital, said: "SteriSpine is a product that has the possibility of both time-saving and cost-saving for surgical teams as it eliminates the need for cleaning and sterilization processes as well as reducing the burden of increased expenses caused by surgical site infections. In particular, the ability to reduce staff hours is very beneficial with new approaches. Our hospital is starting to use SteriSpine CC which is now a solution held in high regard by our surgical staff."
"After the success of the SteriSpine PS launch in Japan, we are proud to announce the first results from the SteriSpine CC & LC commercial launch with our partner, KiSCO. This includes ten surgical interventions with positive feedbacks from surgeons, as expressed by Dr. Murakoshi. This is an evidence that only strengthens our ambitions for Japan, the third largest global market for spinal implant with an estimated value of €400 million," said Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Safe Orthopaedics. "We would also like to acknowledge the professionalism of our partner, KiSCO and the benefits this type of partnership brings.
