Our history

Sapi Med was born in 1981 with Dilatan, a medical device used for dilation technique in anal fissure treatment that finds great support among surgeons all over the world. This was the spring-board that paved the way for Sapi Med to become, at first in Italy and then in several countries in the world, the reference point in the sector of colorectal surgery.
It is just in the Eighties that we saw, on the national territory, a dramatic change in the medical approach to proctology, always considered a minor branch of surgery and a subject that didn’t deserve the interest paid to the study of other organs like rectum and colon.
Sapi Med, regarded as the leader in this sector, has strongly contributed to the development of this discipline devoting itself to the research of new technologically advanced solutions, taking advantage of the co-operation with qualified colorectal surgeons and increasing and differentiating its product range.
Nowadays its catalogue offers 70 disposable items created to meet surgeon operative needs in the full respect of patient requirements.
The wide range of devices with which to operate has also made possible to treat in outpatient department a large number of patients suffering from simple and benign anorectal pathologies, so easing operating theatres.
