The iBRA NET Innovation Group aims to encourage and promote innovations within Breast Surgery.
Our mission is to help identify, evaluate and translate great innovations into clinical practice for the benefit of our patients.
There is an increasing emphasis on the importance of Innovation in healthcare, as demonstrated by the NHS England Innovation department and the Royal College of Surgeons publication of the “Future of Breast Surgery”.
In this group, we seek to identify new innovations in breast surgery. We foster relationships with industry, and link to clinicians who want to participate in product design and evaluation. We can provide advice and support for start-ups and liaise with the emerging number of allied innovation groups.
We encourage industry and clinicians to provide us with the details of innovations, so that this becomes the greatest resource of up-to-date innovations in breast surgery. This will help surgeons quickly identify what is available and emerging, whilst providing a platform for industry to demonstrate their technologies at the earliest stage
