Hirondelle Medical was born out of a strong need for precision in the placement of pedicle screws, particularly in complex upper thoracic scoliosis procedures.
The team of surgeons at the Clinique du Parc in Castelnau-Le-Lez, identified a real problem with conventional techniques and the lack of precision during surgery, which failed to meet the team’s needs and expectations.
They joined forces with the interventional radiology team to share their knowledge and find a solution to this need. This led progressively to the development of a technique that is more reliable and financially viable for surgeons, patients and the medical institution.
Ever since, interventional radiologists Eric Decoux and Denis Hoa have been working together with the surgical team to develop a device adapted for this new technique: PRECISE.
The merging of these two disciplines is the essence behind this new project, with the ultimate goal of precision and patient safety. Backed by the vast experience of surgeons and radiologists and the use of the latest state-of-the-art equipment such as the CT scanner, Hirondelle Medical and its innovative PRECISE instrument came to light.
