Ontario’s Synaptive Medical has developed innovative technology that enables surgeons to navigate the brain through clearer, three-dimensional images. The Toronto-based firm is hopeful their ground breaking technology will lead to better patient outcomes.
“I don’t know how or why technology in this field progressed so slowly in the past,” stated Synaptive’s President, Cameron Piron. “Some people insist that neurosurgeons are set in their ways. So we decided to bring the technology to them to see with their own eyes,” he said addressing a crowd of just over 300 at the MaRS Discovery District. In addition to presenting his firm’s revolutionary technology, Piron shared what he learned from his previous venture in the medtech space with a room filled to capacity with entrepreneurs and medical professionals.
