Complex illnesses require detailed 3d printing solutions


Better Care at Lower Cost

The University Hospital Basel is an internationally recognized center of research and excellence, located in North-West Switzerland. The hospital provides expert patient care in areas such as cardiac and thoracic diagnostics, abdominal and oncological conditions, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

In the Department of Surgery, physicians often treat patients with complex and life-altering illnesses that need expert, detailed surgical attention. Surgeons are constantly seeking ways to ensure successful clinical outcomes while simultaneously improving patient care and reducing costs for the patient and the hospital.
