Our Cardiff studio is currently working on a project for a Swansea hospital – the redevelopment of a new Outpatients Head & Neck Department that will use pioneering 3D printing technology for plastic surgery.

“It is really exciting to be working with the Morriston Hospital clinical teams to create healthcare environments that support their ground-breaking work,” said Lindsay Gibbon, IBI Nightingale Project Architect. “Wales is investing heavily in new technology and research to support its growth as leaders in this field, and the positive outcome is evident.”

A recent trauma patient at the hospital, Stephen Power, is thought to be the first in the world to have surgery that reshapes his face using 3D printed parts at every stage of the procedure. To learn more about the pioneering work, click here.
