Abdominal Wall Health

It's All about Prevention

Approximately 1.000.000 procedures are performed annually in Germany and 5.000.000 in the USA combining both open abdominal procedures and hernia repair procedures. Since the complications associated with these surgeries are becoming a top issue for the medical community, in B. Braun our goal is not only to work on repairing the abdominal wall but also to ensure its functionality and health for patients.

At  B. Braun we take all our efforts towards physicians and patients very seriously. This is the reason why B. Braun is highly committed to the scientific community; so as to promote clinical evidence which prevents complications in abdominal wall surgery.
B. Braun is a healthcare company which is pleased to be faithful partner for the medical community and for their patients. Because in life everybody knows, It’s All about Prevention!
