Why is the new MODULITH SLK »inline« the best decision for an urological clinic?

Why is the new MODULITH SLK »inline« the best decision for an urological clinic?

Interview with ESWL expert Professor Axel Häcker, M.D.

Professor Häcker, your clinic has been using extracorporeal lithotripsy since 1989, starting with the first MODULITH® SL10/20.

What were the reasons for your decision, and what do you expect from the new MODULITH® SLK »inline« for your clinic, your patients and yourself? We would like to ask you a few questions about this.
