Who we are
We, at Surgify, are currently preparing the commercialization of a novel technology for skull opening procedures at Aalto University with financial support from Tekes. To enable continuous communication with clinicians, we have been working in close cooperation with Neurosurgical Department of Helsinki University Central Hospital.
In many fields of surgery and dentistry, bone has to be cut or removed without damaging the proximal soft structures. Surgify develops new solutions to protect these structures and prevent associated complications. Bleeding, infections and nerve injuries are some of the complications that can severely affect a patient’s quality of life. Our first technology is designed to minimize the risks and make skull opening procedures safer and faster.
Less invasive surgery means less trauma and faster recovery of the patient. Preventing damage in the first place means safer operations and less corrective actions.
What we are looking for
We are looking for investors and partners, preferably with expertise in the medical device industry. We are also interested in discussing with clinicians and surgeons about new ideas and solutions.
