Xilloc Medical B.V. The company manufactures implants that are custom designed for each individual patient using 3D printing. Also the way of fixating the implant is already preprocessed through a unique system where physician specifies such positions. This procedure results in a perfect fit every time which means that that the physician no longer has to make the implant fit during implant surgery.
