‘We are producing patient-specific implants that shorten the surgical time’

The focus of medical engineer Einar Heiberg’s research is on empowering physicians with patient-specific 3D models to help each patient. “The vision that I have is that for complex surgeries, the surgeons have already done the surgery multiple times and know exactly what to expect.”

Einar Heiberg is a medical engineer at the Centre for Medical Imaging and Physiology at Skåne University Hospital and a researcher at Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM).

In 2022, every week a researcher working at WCMM at Lund University and Skåne University Hospital is presented. In the video, Einar Heiberg shares more about his research.
