Sutkin receives NIH grant to develop technology for safer surgeries

Gary Sutkin, M.D., director of the UMKC School of Medicine’s Surgical Innovations Laboratory, has received a three-year, $600,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop simulation technology that can be used to prevent surgical errors.

With magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and a 3-D printer, Sutkin plans to create a high-fidelity pelvic simulator and use motion analysis to identify surgical errors involved in Midurethral Sling surgery.  Read More

 

Sutkin, GaryUMKC medical, engineering students collaborate to reduce surgical error

There are millions of surgical operations performed by doctors each year. According to the Institute of Medicine, 98,000 people die every year due to hospital errors.

In response to this startling statistic, UMKC’s medical and engineering researchers united in hopes of reducing surgical error. They strive to help patients undergoing surgery feel confident that there will be low or no chance of fatal complications.  Read More
