Meet the Core team

Johan Ungerstedt

CEO, Founder & Member of the Board

MD.PhD. Consultant Surgeon

Johan is the innovator of PexyEazy®. The idea came to him during a colorectal surgery course during his residency in surgery in 2011. A new article from P.J Gupta, that showed that mucopexy has equally good effect as THD, inspired him to start thinking if there could be improvements to be made to make mucopexy easier to perform. Johan has also designed a new tweezers that makes it easier to grasp the suture needle when closing the abdominal incision hole after laparoscopic surgery. This innovative tweezer is produced by Stille AB.

Johan is a consultant surgeon, with a PhD degree in Transplantation Surgery, but has dedicated his surgical career to acute and trauma surgery. Since 2020, Johan is working as CEO of Developeration AB, but has also one day of surgical reception per week at the private hospital Sophiahemmet in Stockholm, Sweden, to keep up the surgical knowledge, focused on the proctology field.
