The Pet Doctor - Episode 171 Modeling Veterinary Medicine to New Dimensions and Making the Scalpel Obsolete

September 4, 201332 min
Some people may take them for granted but there are certain aspects of our everyday life that I find to be mini wonders of the world…how bridges stay up, communications can be instantaneous ½ way around the world with only a small handheld device, the disembodied know it all can guide me on a road trip with only the occasional ‘recalculating’ prompt and how veterinary dentists at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine have been able to use 3-D printers to construct models of an animal skull…Amazing. Dr. Boaz Arzi is my guest today. We are going to chat about collaborative efforts of engineers and veterinarians at UC Davis to improve the health of animals and people. In medical circles, there is a common adage amongst surgeons…a chance to cut is a chance to cure. If it is up to my guest, Dr. Bill Culp of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, that phrase may become antiquated in some veterinary surgical situations. Dr. Culp is a board certified veterinary surgeon who is foregoing the blade and using radiology to treat conditions previously thought to be inoperable. Questions or comments?
