SurgiReal Products is an exciting early-stage and entrepreneurial company that has experienced phenomenal growth since its launch in 2013. SurgiReal’s proprietary surgical simulation products incorporate innovative technology and, as a result, are an extremely effective educational platform to train future human and veterinary surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, veterinary technicians and lab animal researchers.
Spun-off from Colorado State University's CSU Ventures technology transfer organization in late 2012, SurgiReal Products has been rapidly growing, extending the educational benefits of its products and developing new products ever since.
The company's founders, Dr. Dean Hendrickson and Dr. Fausto Bellezzo, believed that there had to be a better way to train surgeons and other health care providers in various surgical skills. Traditionally, items like cadaver parts, fruit, sponges or any other less than realistic and less than durable surgical training platforms have been the norm. After months of materials research, development and testing, and using their combined 35+ years of surgical experience as a guide, the patented technologies that have been incorporated into SurgiReal's products were developed.
