Bordeaux University Hospital harnesses Stratasys J750 full-colour 3D printer to support complex kidney surgery

July 16, 2019 / Sam Davies

Bordeaux University Hospital is using Stratasys J750 full-colour 3D printing system to produce anatomical models for complex kidney tumour removal procedures. It is one of the only hospitals worldwide to have adopted the J750 platform, thanks in large part to funding from three research partners: the European Union, the regional Council of Nouvelle Aquitaine, and the Bordeaux University Foundation. The J750 platform is being used to print transparent and colour models of patient anatomy to assist precise kidney-sparing surgery and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Kidney-sparing surgery is a procedure which looks to remove the tumour, while preserving the organ’s healthy tissues.
