A worker is only as good as his tools, and for a doctor who performs surgery, surgical instruments have to be precise and perfect to get the job done. STILLE AB, a leading manufacturer of surgical equipment, has made its mark in the market of the world. Albert Stille, the founder of STILLE, a renowned and proficient surgical instruments manufacturer, had the vision to help millions of lives with his work. The company came into being at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden in the year 1841.
STILLE focuses its marketing efforts on a variety of prioritized sectors—specifically, surgical instruments and surgical tables specialized in cardiovascular surgery, plastic surgery, urology, and gynecology. Their hand-made instruments are also well applicable for open surgical procedures.
Even with all the advancements in modern day technology—from designing to production, all managed by AI and cutting edge technology—STILLE's surgical types of equipment are still manufactured by hand, which guarantees products to be of higher quality, durability, longevity, and feel. With notable recognition from renowned surgeons who said that they feel the instruments to be an extension of their hands itself.
The company’s latest endeavor is focused on image diagnostic technology. The STILLE imagiq2 surgical table is an essential advancement in flourishing a low dose technology field, enabling the OR to be a safer place for patients and doctors alike. It is built on an innovative carbon fiber tabletop design, which reduces and weakens the traces of harmful radiation. This unique polymer design enables a reduced dose level of X-ray to saturate on a patient but rather allows most of the transparent rays to pass through, increasing safety.
Hanna Ernestam Wilkman recently took over the position of CEO of STILLE. She is currently being employed as the operations manager for Academics clinics at Storangsbotten, Stockholm. With Hanna’s previous work expertise with Sectra, Johnson & Johnson, and all of her board experience, she will carry the company to greater heights.
