About Bcon Medical
At the Netherlands Cancer Institute, researchers recognized the need to improve cancer surgery. In more than 20% of the operated cancer patients, surgery is inadequate. In these cases, either surgical resection margins still show tumor cells or too much healthy tissue is removed or damaged. Tumor positive resection margins are a strong predictor for tumor recurrence, while damage to healthy tissue can result in long lasting complications such as urinary incontinence or sexual dysfunction. A surgeon has to balance between radical tumor resection and sparing healthy tissue. Bcon medical develops state-of-the-art navigation solutions to guide surgeons during complex surgical procedures. Our focus is on making electromagnetic navigation solutions available and affordable for all surgical oncology hospitals.
