Ordering from Japan
The Wittmann Patch has United States, European, and Canadian approvals. In Japan, a doctor is legally allowed to import an unapproved medical product as long as it is for the doctor’s own use. If you or your hospital want to order the Wittmann Patch and/or the StarGuard suture retention plates, please contact us.
