BBC World

George dramatically fell off his bike. His story and how we help his surgeon Prof Hutchison was featured on BBC World as part of journalist Katie Silver’s documentary on the use of 3D printing in surgery. Surgeons are labeling the technology a revolution – as the ability to print bespoke implants gives patients quicker recovery times and a better end result.

Channel 5’s “Botched Bodies”

This series of Botched Bodies featured one of our PEEK implants.

They are so well made that when they get into the right place they just clip into place”

Channel 4’s “How to build a Bionic Man”

A group of roboteers assembled this amazing bionic man from the most cutting edge prosthetics so naturally decided to work with us for the bionic man’s head. We designed and manufactured the PEEK and Titanium implants (you can only see the cranial implants but the bionic man also has orbital, cheek and mandibular impants!).

Conjoined twins Rital and Ritag separated at Great Ormond Street Hospital

We were delighted to help again Facing the World. The design and operative computer-planning expertise of Robin Richards of Cavendish Implants was asked for to help the clinical team with the planning of the four consecutive surgeries that untangled the twins’ highly complex vascular system. Mr Dunaway and Mr Jeelani, craniofacial surgeons operating on the twins, said that Robin’s models (3D printed by Cavendish Imaging) were immensely useful to plan and rehearse what they would do later in theatre so that the operating time would be kept to a minimum. We wish the twins a very happy future.

Facing the World
