Surgical & Prosthetic DesignResearching & supporting the design of patient specific surgical devices since 1998
We offer a professional, friendly, and efficient UK-based service, tailored to meet your requirements. Since 1998, PDR has realised thousands of designs for patient-specific 3D-printed models, guides, and implants. We work with maxillofacial surgeons, craniofacial surgeons, neurosurgeons, and support staff in the UK NHS and beyond. Our work can improve the predictability, accuracy, safety, and speed of medical procedures.
Enduring research and development collaborations with surgeons, prosthetists, technologists, researchers, and industry have delivered unique insights into the real-world constraints of the lab, theatre, and manufacturing environments. Our team of design engineers and researchers are routinely embedded in hospital departments to learn first-hand about the unique challenges posed by trauma, deformity and disease. This unique blend of expertise allows us to realise practical, effective and reliable design solutions. Our work was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Research in 2015.
