Tim Tobin, the CEO of Planatome, a medical device company that applies atomic-level polishing from the semiconductor industry to create advanced surgical blades that lead to better patient outcomes joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Technology Channels.

  1. Where did you get the idea to use technology from the semiconductor industry to sharpen surgical blades?
  2. How does the process sharpen the blades?
  3. Is there any way to quantify how much sharper it is than a blade that has been sharpened by grinding?
  4. What are the benefits to the physician of having a sharper blade? Are there any benefits to the patient?
  5. Scars are a major concern of every surgeon and every patient. I'm interested to know how having a sharper surgical blade helps decrease the odds of patient scars?
  6. Do you have surgeons currently using the blades for procedures? What has been their experience?

Tim Tobin has been in the semiconductor industry for over 25 years holding leadership, sales, and technical positions at Motorola, SpeedFam-IPEC, and Metron Technology, prior to co-founding Entrepix, Inc., in 1998. Tobin has a master’s degree in Microelectronic Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology and a bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics from State University of New York at Geneseo.
