Following a long experience in Bosa Elettromedicali, the company which, in the 1960s and 1970s, introduced the most important technologies allowing the birth and growth of heart surgery in Italy, Aldo Cerruti founded ab medica in 1984.
A great lover of racing cars, supermotard and golf, over more than 20 years he has consolidated the company’s image both nationally and internationally thanks to continuous collaboration with the world’s most prestigious companies in the most advanced sectors of medicine. In 1999 he introduced robotic surgery into Italy with the da Vinci robot and, in 2003, stereotactic surgery with the CyberKnife System, the first in Europe.
