Surgical Medicine and Medical Education

Throughout the history of surgery, the goal of medical professionals was to peak into the workings of the human body and to improve it with as small incisions and excisions as possible. The medical device start-up, Levita aims to refine such procedures with its Magnetic Surgical System. It is an innovative technological platform utilizing magnetic retraction designed to grasp and retract the gallbladder during a laparoscopic surgery. The technology started to get a foothold also in medical education. To provide surgeons and students with an alternative to a living human being to work on, a pair of physicians at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) have developed a way to use 3D printing to create artificial organs.
