David Boudreault , MD
Stanford , CA
David Boudreault finished his second year of General Surgery at UCSF East-Bay program and is a Fogarty Fellow in the Biodesign Program at Stanford. He has a strong interest in bringing new technology or procedures to patients that will reduce their risk and improve their quality of life. As a surgical resident, David witnessed many processes that seemed outdated, and there were many surgeons frustrated at the disconnect between designer and user. This reaffirmed his desire to design from the perspective of fundamental needs.
The son of a machinist, he was trained in the art of Machining and wants to use these skills as an innovator. In his childhood, his house was always full of conversations about creating the next great thing. These conversations around the dinner table would often result in prototypes being made in the machine shop. Some of these inventions would later be sold door to door, and this instilled a great sense of pride in him as a part of the team. The desire to create and improve continued in his experience with mentors and surgical attendings. In his residency he gravitated towards surgeons with needs, and he often helped them identify manufacturable solutions.
Dr. Boudreault hopes to bring a practical sensibility to the innovative process that will result in simple and effective solutions to significant medical needs. In doing so, he hopes to make a meaningful impact on the quality of patient care.
