Why Dornier

Dornier MedTech

Science has always revolutionized the way Dornier was able to take flight as an aviation company as well as pioneer new urological treatment methods as a MedTech company. From the beginning we have always understood the importance of designing products that:

  • Serve a medical purpose and whose innovation is backed by scientific data. Help patients and physicians succeed together in order to thrive in their communities.
  • Are easy to use and adaptable to different medical environments.
  • Incorporate the latest technology to gather key data necessary to facilitate fact-based treatment decisions.
  • Are available in robust or compact sizes to accommodate the budgets of all medical facilities.

That same spirit and energy is still found in the halls of Dornier today and our passion has inspired the development of some of the highest quality urology products on the market today. That is why our purpose is Leading Technology * Improving Life, and why so many urologists and medical centers across the world trust Dornier.

Urology Care Foundation™ The Official Foundation of the American Urological Association

Urology Research

As one of the original supporters of the Urology Care Foundation (formerly known as the ‘American Foundation for Urologic Diseases’ and ‘AUA Foundation’), Dornier has been partnering with the Foundation for nearly 30 years to support urology research. With a shared vision of advancing patient care, Dornier’s commitment to funding innovative research encompasses a broad range of urologic diseases.

In 1987, Dornier established a $2 million endowment with the Urology Care Foundation for the advancement of urology research and public education. This investment has helped develop the careers of nearly 60 researchers across the United States and Canada, many of who have become leaders in the field.
