About us

We – the Terebra team - bring together extensive medical knowledge, passion of making our world a better place to live and experience in introducing new products to the market. Neurosurgical expertise, machining engineering and creativity helped us to invent & develop next generation of surgical burrs with protective atraumatic features, that can actively prevent most common complications in spinal surgery at their point of origin.


Our mission is surgery without complications.

We introduce new surgical philosophy of atraumatic approach the spine, innovative techniques protecting every patient from iatrogenic injury during surgery.

Our solution - safe atraumatic burrs were created with one goal only: to uncomplicate surgery.


Facilitated approach to the spinal canal and reduced intraoperative complications lead to shorter surgery & recovery times – clear and often priceless benefits for every patient, every surgeon and every hospital. Another dimension of benefits are economic advantages for both patients (lower cost of surgery) and surgeon (more operations conducted in the same time). Not to mention about  sharpening the competitive edge due to reputation for excellence in spinal surgery.

How it works

We designed protective features based on mechanical improvements of the burr’s geometry. It pushes gently aside and effectively keep vulnerable anatomical structures apart from sharp cutting edges rotating nearby. Feasibility and usability of our solution is confirmed thanks to extensive prototyping and experimentations on animal models as well as human cadaver under realistic conditions. We accomplished the development of final design of atraumatic burrs and filed patent applications.



Terebra GmbH is a privately held medical device company (LLC) founded by friends in 2016 in Cologne/Germany. We are going to introduce to the market patented atraumatic surgical burrs, which actively prevent most common complications in spinal surgery, uncomplicating approach to the spinal canal, thus accelerating progress of the operation and shortening the overall surgery time significantly.
