"The more your concerns are my concerns and mine are yours, the better we understand." Christoph Miethke, founder of Miethke GmbH & Co.KG

Aesculap & Miethke – Alliance for innovations.

Our devices are designed and produced at Miethke by mothers and fathers, sons and daughters. Though we may not share the sorrows of the patients or the families, we are certainly aware of them. We stand close with patients, surgeons and our partners. We see patients as “our” patients, and suffering children as “our” children.

Miethke and Aesculap share the same understanding and Aesculap is capable of distributing and supporting Miethke products around the world.

Aesculap and Miethke have been cooperating since 1999. In 2010 the successful partnership was further strengthened with the shareholding by Aesculap AG in Miethke GmbH & Co. KG. The goal was and is to develop better solutions for the difficult treatment of hydrocephalus and to make those available all over the world.


"This is the first time in a long time that I can walk again!"

Understanding the essentials.

We strive to understand both the significant challenges faced by the surgeon as well as the serious needs of the Hydrocephalus patient. It is with this understanding that we develop and produce Gravitational valves which substantially improve the quality of patient‘s lives.

We understand your needs.
Our Gravitational shunt systems are based on your needs and our innovations and they are produced according to the highest technical standards.

We understand your patients.
Patients with hydrocephalus want to live a normal life.

We understand gravity.
The best therapy works in every body position.

The Gravity

The Gravity
"There is so much to discover in life."

Gravity is walking tall with hydrocephalus.

Gravity – the force that attracts a body towards the centre of the earth.
Gravity – a serious situation or problem.
Gravity – dignity or sobriety of bearing.

Our approach to improve technology and provide a better life for patients is the result of an innovative and systematic professional analysis of technological options. As a result, Miethke Gravitational valves lower the risk of complications for patients with Hydrocephalus.

Of the Situation

Of the Situation
"The SVASONA study is a great study yielding very good evidence for gravitational valves!"

It is a question of different perspectives.

Every surgeon and every patient has different demands, different challenges and different perspectives.
With our products and performance we reconcile every perspective.
Confidence as well as competence are represented powerfully and authentically.
