“I began using VECTRA technology in 2005 while I was a plastic surgery resident. VECTRA 3D images have been an invaluable tool for me while I’m constructing a game plan for complex surgeries. It improves our chances for good outcomes and allows us to objectively measure our options.”
Dr. Oren Tepper, the lead Plastic Surgeon on the recent successful separation of conjoined twins Jadon and Anias McDonald at Montefiore Hospital, relied on Canfield’s VECTRA 3D technology before the surgery. Beginning weeks prior to the surgery Dr. Tepper used the VECTRA to quantify the progress of critical tissue expansion in the twins, ensuring that there would be enough to close the twins’ tissues and thus complete the operation.
