Comments:
SURGICHIPô is an FDA approved, patent pending procedure which uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to help prevent wrong-site, wrong-procedure and wrong-patient surgery. It was designed by an Orthopaedic Surgeon to be used in addition to the usual safeguards against these errors. Although it does not guarantee no errors will occur, it is the most advanced technology available to help assure the correct procedure is performed on the correct site and on the intended patient.

The SURGICHIPô computer chip (transponder) is affixed to the skin with adhesive and is removed prior to the incision; the SURGICHIPô device is not implanted inside the body. After the chip has been used for an operative procedure it is placed in the hospital chart and not used on another patient.
