Innovator, creator and an MD, Sandy Heck joins the show! He tells us about the invention of a tool he co-created, that’s used in laparoscopic surgeries around the world, often referred to by surgeons as ‘D-HELP’ (de-fogging, heated, endoscopic, lens protector). So naturally, we pick his brain about how he was able to start a business, get patents and FDA approval all while attending medical school at Cornell.
Sandy also tells us how doctors now approach him with ideas for new inventions that would help them in the operating room, and about the surgical product he and his business partner recently launched. Plus, Sandy gives us tips on how to make a prototype that works!
