A Revolution in Spine Surgery Education
Realistic, customizable, cost-effective—SpineSTUD™ training models are changing the game for surgeons.
What is a STUD?
Surgical Training and Utility Device
STUDs are surgical training and utility devices with high biomechanical fidelity, customizability, and cost-savings over existing cadaveric and synthetic model options. As such, STUDs provide a superior platform for surgical education, biomechanical research, and surgical device development.
What Surgeons Are Saying About SurgiSTUD™
“The model of scoliosis has been extremely helpful for teaching students, residents, company personnel, parents, etc… and the 3-D morphology of the true deformity of the spine and trunk including ribs. They can really better then understand surgical strategies for correction.”Randal Betz, MD Institute for Spine and Scoliosis
Past President, Scoliosis Research Society
Former Chair, Spinal Deformity Education Group
“The Spine STUD™ is an excellent platform to learn spinal instrumentation and reduction techniques. It provides a realistic representation of spinal anatomy and three dimensional deformity without the cost and logistical challenges of learning with cadaveric specimens.”Joe Petfield Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery fellow
“The model was by far the most realistic one I’ve used. The feel of the “bone” for every step of the instrumentation process was remarkable. The set up of the model within simulated soft tissues and ribs allows for an excellent surgical practice environment. I would highly recommend it for any trainee at any level.”Arun R. Hariharan, MD, MS Clinical Fellow
