Medicon eG expands company headquarters

As part of the corporate development strategy of the surgical cooperative Medicon eG, Tuttlingen, the company decided in December 2018 to purchase the former "Comeg" building at Dornierstrasse 55 in Tuttlingen.

Medicon eG is currently concentrating on centralizing essential core processes in the areas of logistics and production and thus making them more efficient. The medium-term investment volume for this is approx. 6 million euros.
With process-optimized structures, Medicon eG will continue to grow and at the same time shoulder the demands that the new MDR (Medical Device Regulation) will place on all companies in the medical technology sector from 2020 onward.
The cooperative association of 9 medium-sized medical technology companies from the Tuttlingen area was founded in 1941. The company has always attached great importance to its product philosophy "Made in Germany". The investments currently being made strengthen Medicon eG's commitment to Germany as a business location and, in particular, to Tuttlingen as a manufacturing location.  
The network deals with the manufacture, development and worldwide distribution of medical technology products such as surgical instruments, container systems, motor systems and implants for oral and maxillofacial surgery and spinal surgery.

Medicon Course PRESTO – Identity Preserving Facelift Technique – Preserving of the retaining ligaments & the SMAS tethering

Our Medicon Course PRESTO took place for the first time from June 22 – 24, 2017 at the Clinic Dr. Funk – Clinic for Plastic, Aesthetic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Munich. The course was of great interest and fully booked already several weeks prior to the start of the course.  

During the course, 12 participants had the chance to learn about the facelift technique PRESTO developed by Dr. Dr. Funk, owner and head physician of the Clinic Dr. Funk. This is a new, vascular- and soft tissue-saving surgical technique, requiring less time than conventional techniques. The soft tissue spreader PRESTO which has been developed by Dr. Dr. Funk in cooperation with Medicon is perfectly suitable for carrying out this surgical technique. You will find detailed information about the product via the following link:


In the beginning of the two-day course Dr. Dr. Funk familiarized the participants with the theoretical basics of facelifting and the surgical technique PRESTO. The subsequent surgical case offered the participants a detailed insight into this reliable and proven surgical procedure. During the hands-on workshop, all the participants had the chance to make practical use of the newly acquired knowledge, to exchange experiences and to profit from individual feedback of Dr. Dr. Funk.

We would like to thank all participants – also on behalf of Dr. Dr. Funk – for the great cooperation, positive feedback and the very successful course!

If you are interested in attending one of our intensive high-grade trainings, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are pleased to inform about our Medicon Courses offered in the disciplines of Plastic Surgery, Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, Spine Surgery and ENT Surgery!
