The Instruments Division of Stryker Corporation officially opened its new Surgical Innovation Centre in Cork.

The centre, which features unique design and collaboration workspaces, state-of-the-art prototyping and test facilities, and a simulated operating room, is the first of its kind in Ireland. It will focus on the development of new technologies and products to improve patient safety and outcomes during surgery, and increase operating room efficiency across multiple surgical specialties including neuro, spine, ENT and orthopaedic surgery.

Constructed around human-centred design principles, employee wellbeing and a highly efficient and sustainable building design, the new premisses will allow research and development teams and surgeons to collaborate globally in the development and evaluation of new surgical approaches, product concepts and complete procedural solutions in a simulated surgical environment.

Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland (Industrial Development Agency) commented the news :

“It’s great to see this project come to fruition. It will position the company for next generation research and development, enhancing its reputation and status as a world leader in medical technology innovation. It also further consolidates the company’s strong presence in Ireland and significantly boosts Ireland’s reputation as an excellent location for medical technology companies.”

Stryker’s R&D infrastructure in Ireland is underpinned by strong partnerships which the company has developed over many years with its Irish university research partners and medical schools.
