|Undoubtedly the main highlight was our recent (October 31st, 2013) appearence on CNN International. The lovely CNN news anchor Nina Dos Santos was in Maastricht for a short documentary about the European Union and the Treaty of Maastricht. Part of the documentary (from 1min11s onward) was an interview with our CEO Maikel Beerens on the importance of Europe for a young innovative company like Xilloc.

Patient story and surgeon testimonials
|Earlier this year, we helped Carla with her custom cranial implant after recovering from the removal of her meningioma.
You can read her touching story here. She told us:
“Before my implant I could cry of frustration, but now I can cry of happiness”
Also our surgeons are really happy with our patient-specific products, especially with the perfect fit and the tangential fixation InterFix:
“This is the best fitting cranial implant ever!“
“The tangential fixation is really a brilliant solution“
