As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. From poultry and fruit to life-sized human mannequins, surgeons spend years practicing techniques before they enter the operating room. Yet every patient is unique, and it’s been virtually impossible to practice the particulars of an intricate surgery in advance — until now.
The team at Lazarus 3D is transforming preoperative care by allowing surgeons to rehearse surgeries in advance on realistic, 3D-printed models of an individual patient. Made with soft silicones and hydrogels that mimic human tissue, these models are ideal for practicing incisions and sutures — maximizing safety and driving better outcomes for patients and physicians alike. Learn more about this technology and its implications in this quick Lightning Talk with Lazarus 3D President and Founder Smirti Agrawal Zanevald.
