“Operate twice, cut once.” Glimpse the future of surgery.

“Operate twice, cut once.” Glimpse the future of surgery.

Critical care doctor Peter Weinstock shows how surgical teams are using a blend of Hollywood special effects and 3D printing to create amazingly lifelike reproductions of real patients –€“ so they can practice risky surgeries ahead of time.

Doctor Weinstock makes this opening statement at the start of this Ted Talk: “What if I told you there was a new technology that, when placed in the hands of doctors and nurses, improved outcomes for children and adults, patients of all ages; reduced pain and suffering, reduced time in the operating rooms, reduced anaesthetic times, had the ultimate dose-response curve that the more you did it, the better it benefitted patients? Here’s a kicker: it has no side effects, and it’s available no matter where care is delivered. I can tell you as an ICU doctor at Boston Children’s Hospital, this would be a game changer for me. That technology is lifelike rehearsal. This lifelike rehearsal is being delivered through medical simulation.”€

So how do you make the rare common? Watch this fascinating video to find out…

There is a new technology that, when placed in the hands of doctors and nurses, improved outcomes for children and adults, patients of all ages; reduced pain and suffering, reduced time in the operating rooms, reduced anesthetic times, and has no side effects. This is a game changer for surgeons. That technology is lifelike rehearsal. This lifelike rehearsal is being delivered through medical simulation enabled using 3D printing technology.
