Challenges in bone surgery

Bone cutting procedures have risks of complications, which are caused by surgical drill cutting or damaging soft structures, such as central nervous system structures. For example, there is up to 30% risk of damaging soft tissues in skull opening procedures. Reducing these complications rates by making the drill more controllable and safer for soft tissues is preferred.

The benefits of Surgify technology

Safety

Surgify technology enables surgeons to reduce patient suffering by protecting the vital structures, such as nerves, blood vessels and organs.

Speed

Faster operations means less risks for the patient by decreasing the required anesthesia time and the risk of complications. It also allows hospitals to treat more patients with lower costs.

Precision

Surgify technology provides superior precision compared to conventional cutting tools, allowing surgeons to operate in hard to reach areas.

Company background

The core team of Surgify has worked on developing solutions for safer bone surgery since the beginning of 2015. With initial proof-of-concept and market studies, the Surgify team applied successfully for a governmental research grant from Tekes and Aalto University to prepare the commercialization of a new bone cutting technology in January 2016.

During the university commercialization project, the Surgify team developed and successfully tested a technology, which is capable of protecting soft structures during bone surgery and preventing the associated complications. We have been working in close cooperation with Neurosurgical Department of Helsinki University Central Hospital, in order to ensure that the technology always fulfils the expectations of a clinician. Currently, the Surgify team is committed to finalize and commercialize the technology with the goal of making safer bone surgery accessible to all of us.
