Since 2016, a research group of the Parc Taulí University Hospital has focused on applying 3D surgical planning to Orthopedic and Traumatology Surgery in order to improve complex orthopedic surgeries.The skills and experience of the group has grown during these three years as well as the team's composition and infrastructure.
The consolidation of the initiative became a reality last Thursday 11th of April, with the incorporation of a new 3D modeling software and the inauguration of the new laboratory. These have been made possible thanks to the collaboration with the company MasterTec. Currently, the research team has its own laboratory in Santa Fe building in Parc Taulí, two 3D printers, a specialized software for clinical practice, as well the material to carry out the laboratory tasks.
To date, the research team is able to perform surgical guides to increase the accuracy in the spine, knee, shoulder and hip prosthetic surgery, as well as osteotomy plates, anatomical modeling of any types of organs and different healthcare products.
Science, healthcare and business are the three pillars that drive me nowadays. I love to engage new people in the adventure of healthcare innovation and always keep on learning from them. I am highly motivated with my participation in performing teams worldwide.All stories by: Edu Soler
