3D Technology centre
Help us to set up a 3D printing suite which will revolutionise surgery and create bespoke implants and prosthetics for patients.
The technology will enable surgeons to track complex routes through to the site of surgery, for example in brain surgery.
Believed to be a unique concept within the UK, the technology will bring significant
- Clinicians can convert scans into 3D form so that they can visualise complex parts of the body
- Surgeons can simulate different routes for surgery to work out the best options for the individual patient
- 3D printed medical models can be made for planning operations
- Patient-specific implants and surgical guides can be designed and created for
This project will establish a 3D ‘hub’, bringing to Bristol state-of-the-art treatment options which truly put the patient at the heart of surgical and medical solutions.
Your donation can bring forward developments in science and technology to put Southmead Hospital and Bristol at the forefront of cutting edge healthcare.
