Baby’s skull rebuilt at Stony Brook with help of 3-D printer model
Long Island, NY (Newsday) – December 26, 2016
“…That is why choreographing every step in advance was vital, said Dr. Elliot Duboys, associate professor of surgery at Stony Brook School of Medicine and baby Vincent’s other surgeon. Duboys said an infant’s skull has several plates, or sections of bone that are separated by fibrous tissue called “sutures.” As the child ages, the sutures close and the skull becomes fully formed as a solid piece of bone.
Baby Vincent’s metopic synostosis occurred when the metopic suture — which runs from the baby’s “soft spot” at the top of the head, down the forehead to the top of the nose — closed too early, Duboys said. Through a collaboration with Medical Modeling in Colorado, known now as 3D Systems, Egnor and Duboys were able to virtually plan the entire surgery in advance. Duboys said images from a CT scan of baby Vincent’s head were sent to the company, which then manufactured a model skull using the CT information as a template.”

Long Island, NY (PRWEB) – July 15, 2014
Dr. Elliot Duboys, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, PC and Medical Director of Cactus MedSpa is proud to announce the integration of The Pro by EndyMed, an FDA approved system into his New York cosmetic surgical practice. Dr. Duboys is one of the first cosmetic surgeons in Long Island to offer The PRO by EndyMed, the latest generation in radio frequency skin tightening and body contouring. The PRO offers 3-DEEP technology that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, tightens skin, minimizes cellulite, and contours various areas of the body, (face, arms, abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks and thighs, etc).
About EndyMed 3-DEEP RF Treatment
3-DEEP Technology is the most effective way available today to tighten skin and fight the visible signs of aging. Treatments with The PRO is a true “Lunch-Time” procedure, as it is noninvasive, painless with no downtime. Following a treatment, the patient can apply make-up and return to work with little more than a transient “blush.” EndyMed 3-DEEP is suitable for all skin types and colors and is fully customizable depending on each individual’s particular needs and desires. Another added benefit is that these treatments may be used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to ensure improved and complimentary results.
The EndyMed 3-DEEP system works by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy to multiple layers of tissue for targeted and controlled treatments. With each consecutive treatment, individuals see both an immediate visible improvement to their skin as well as a continued improvement that continues long after the treatment series. In other words, treatment results become progressively better over time. The best results are obtained with a series of treatments over the course of a 6-week period.
Depending upon the type of treatment a patient requires, EndyMed 3-DEEP RF treatment can improve:
- Skin smoothness, tone and texture
- Tightness of facial and body skin
- Appearance of cellulite on buttocks, thighs and abdomen
- Acne scars
- Appearance of wrinkles
- Skin elasticity
Dr. Elliot Duboys focuses on helping his patients improve their body image and self-esteem utilizing a variety of invasive and non-invasive cosmetic treatments and procedures. The addition of The Pro by EndyMed to his practice will allow, Dr. Duboys to provide optimal results for his patients without having to go “under the knife”. Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, PC and Cactus MedSpa are looking forward to bringing this new revolutionary technology and treatment to people seeking non-invasive rejuvenation in the Long Island, and the Greater New York Metropolitan area.
Surgeons Repair Congenital Skull Deformity in a 6-Month Old Child Assisted by 3-D Printing and Virtual Surgical Planning
Huntington, New York – February 10, 2014
A team of surgeons at Stony Brook University led by Dr. Michael Egnor, Professor of Neurosurgery and Dr Elliot Duboys, Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery have successfully remodeled the skull of a 6 month old infant assisted by computerized virtual surgery and 3-D modeling. The baby was born with a rare congenital deformity known as plagiocephaly in which one of the growth plates of the skull fuses prematurely resulting in a flattened forehead, prominence of the opposite forehead as well as orbital asymmetry.
Working with the engineers at Medical Modeling Inc. in Golden, Colorado, a copy of the child’s CAT scan was sent. Using Computerized Assisted Design, Dr. Duboys planned the surgery virtually over the internet. Once the virtual surgery had been planned, 3-dimensional models were fabricated of the child both before and after the planned surgery so the surgeons could accurately predict the immediate results.

The surgery was performed successfully using the models as guides. The length of the procedure was shortened significantly because of the preoperative virtual surgical planning. Post-operatively the child has done extremely well.
