GLASSBORO, N.J. -

Patients with broken bones may soon undergo more successful surgeries thanks to the work of an Assistant Research Professor at Rowan University. 

Dr. Mohammad Abedin-Nasab developed a robot that will be able to assist surgeons treating patients with a broken femur or other bones that will enable patients to heal faster and with fewer complications.

The University City Science Center recently awarded Abedin-Nasab with one of only three "Proven as Demonstrated," also known as Q.E.D. Program grants of $100,000 to develop his Robossis-orthopedic surgical robot.

Robossis will assist surgeons with pre-operative planning and surgery.

For patients, the added benefits include less exposure to radiation, fewer and shorter hospital stays, a lower risk of infection, and less blood loss.

This is the first time the University City Science Center has awarded Q.E.D. funding to a Rowan Professor.

Abedin-Nasab is a Research Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering at Rowan University.
