The procedure was performed at the Department of Plastic, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery at the University Hospital of Regensburg. Founded in 1245 and built on the site of a 2nd century Roman fortress, Regensburg today is the 4th largest city in Bavaria with a population of over 150,000, and is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The university hospital specializes primarily in restoring body shape and function in complex cases following tumors, accidents, burns, wounds, injuries and diseases of the hand and wrist. The center performs about 50 surgeries related to thumb amputations every year. Participating in the surgery were Department Head, Prof. Dr. Lukas Prantl, Prof. Dr. Silvan Klein, and PD Dr. Sebastian Geis.
“Under Professor Rickard Brånemark's guidance, we have performed the first operation on a thumb amputee with Integrum's innovative implant technology. The procedure went well and was carried out as a single stage procedure” says Prof. Dr. Lukas Prantl, Department of Plastic, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery, University Hospital of Regensburg.
“We are proud to announce that yet another German center has been included in our growing list of specialized care institutions performing surgeries using our implant technology. With every new center added, the possibility for more patients to get access to better care with great impact on their daily life increases,” comments Rickard Brånemark, CEO of Integrum.
