Lab for Research – Lab for Education
The vision of the Cadaveric Lab at the time of its inception in 2009 was education. The space was created to allow OrthoIllinois surgeons, other healthcare providers and technicians the opportunity to perform surgical techniques they had seen performed in live operating theaters. The profound educational value of the lab allowed for myself and others to host clinics and courses to groups of visiting surgeons, affording them the opportunity to both teach and learn surgical technique.
Over the years the Cadaveric Lab’s list of amenities and services grew and to keep up with surgical innovation and continue to serve as not only a state-of-the-art educational facility, but also as a perfectly equipped lab in which surgical products are developed, tested, and observed, before being brought to market.
State-of-the-Art Cadaveric Laboratory Available for Rent
Currently, the Cadaveric Lab is available for rental for the purposes of intellectual property development, surgical procedure and skill development/ education, and real time surgical collaboration world-wide.
Broadcast Surgery LIVE Worldwide
More recently we have invested in the Cadaveric Lab’s robust video conferencing capabilities with Avail MedSystems high end cameras which can be controlled remotely by someone anywhere else in the world allowing people to log in and be in the room virtually while a surgery is being performed or a product is being surgically applied or implanted into a cadaver.
Because the Cadaveric Lab is a non-profit center owned and operated by the Midwest Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education [MFORE], we can use it to conduct exciting Orthopaedic research and educational projects with residents and fellows that for which we might otherwise have difficulty securing funding.
Fully Staffed Laboratory
We’ve also made the execution of conducting projects in the lab incredibly easy for anyone in healthcare who may need it, by providing dedicated lab technicians who procure specimens, set up the flexible space for their exact needs. We are afforded great flexibility when scheduling these labs. They can run anytime during the regular business day and are often scheduled during evening and weekend hours as well.
Having used this Cadaveric Lab since its first day, I’m impressed with the space it has become. I could not have predicted the world’s need for virtual surgical labs, and am so pleased that this facility has evolved into a perfect arena for both virtual and live group instruction and product development.
