 Project objective

Nowadays, a total of 920k laminectomies and craniotomies (EU and US) are performed every year. In about 10% of these surgical procedures iatrogenic damage (unintended damage during surgery to anatomical structures such as nerves, blood vessels etc.) to dura mater (fibrous membrane that surrounds the brain and the spinal cord and retains the cerebrospinal fluid) occurs, with a wide ranging postoperative impact to patients, such as severe nerve injuries, long healing time or even death. This is largely due to the fact that these surgical procedures are still performed today using electromechanical hand-tools, which performance depends exclusively on the surgeon’s skill and dexterity. Thus, they involve a high risk of iatrogenic damage to dura mater that can lead to serious injury to the patient. In this context, surgical robotic systems are gaining momentum in many surgical disciplines as they provide advanced support to surgeons to perform a wide range of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control. Together with improved patient care, cost reduction related to shorter post-operative stays, shorter surgery durations or improved management of surgical rooms are some highly-valued features of surgical robotics. As a result, the surgical robotics market is expected to grow from $3 billion in 2014 to $6 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 10,2% throughout the period 2016‐2020. In light of these considerations, Deneb Medical, a start-up located in San Sebastian (Spain), has developed the BoneCut Collaborative Robot, tailored to overcome human limitations during craniotomies and laminotomies and eliminate the risk of iatrogenic damage.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "BONECUT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
