About Surgical Innovations

Surgical Innovations is an initiative of the Department of Surgery in partnership with the Department of Bioengineering & Therapeutic Sciences to identify, mentor, and facilitate the translation of novel medical technologies into transformative new devices and treatments to improve patient care by:
  • Lowering the barriers for surgeon-innovators. We provide a one-stop shop to guide and support device innovators, complete with dedicated technical staff, resident and student team members, access to facilities and equipment, coordination with campus innovation programs, and a rich network of multidisciplinary experts and device industry professionals.
  • Focusing on value-based solutions with market viability.  Our Accelerator program vets projects comprehensively and provides seed funding, mentorship, and commercialization planning to the most promising ideas.
  • Educating trainees in interdisciplinary collaboration and translation. Our Innovation Pathway provides hands-on training experiences for surgical residents in their research years to work alongside graduate bioengineering students under multidisciplinary mentorship.
