Jimmy Da Silva, a former doctoral student at ISIR, and Elie Saghbiny, an orthopedic surgeon and researcher at ISIR, are both laureates of the prestigious Charpak Dubousset Prize, awarded by the National Academy of Medicine.
They were distinguished for their collaborative work conducted jointly by ISIR and the company SpineGuard. This work focused on the use of SpineGuard’s DSG technology in robotic surgery to automatically detect potentially dangerous bone breaches and to immediately stop the drilling when approaching the spinal cord or other soft tissues.
This Charpak Dubousset prize is intended for researchers who have carried out work leading to a medical application in the field of health care. It was presented to them on Tuesday, December 13, during the formal session and the proclamation of the winners and the presentation of the 2022 scientific prizes at the National Academy of Medicine.
