Macon, GA, July 30, 2018 – Georgia Neurosurgical Institute (GNI), with practice locations in Macon, Warner Robins, Dublin, Milledgeville, Griffin and Locust Grove, today announced the recent collaboration of GNI vascular neurosurgeon Arthur Grigorian, MD and previous GNI Research Fellow Tigran Khachatryan to create a device that will be used across the globe for the purposes of neurosurgical education.

The patent-pending technology, named Trankenstein, features the head and torso of a human model, complete with a skeletal framework and brain vessels. It allows for the creation of vascular conditions such as ischemic strokes, aneurysms, and vascular malformations for the purpose of training physicians in the techniques used to treat these conditions. This groundbreaking teaching model offers the most realistic scenario by using 3D technology based upon human anatomy.
