Video Production

Medical Device Training and Marketing

We have extensive experience helping manufacturers of medical devices inform their customers and leads on the safe and effective use of their products using video, web-based multimedia and tablet-friendly content. From surgical instruments to diagnostic and monitoring equipment, energy devices and everything in between, we can help you educate and inform your audience. Need a method to test and track user participation and compliance in your training method? We have got you covered with web-based data-driven interactive activities.

Surgical Teaching Video

Our surgical video specialists travel to hospitals and teaching centers around the United States, documenting the latest surgical procedures. We produce videos for a variety of clients and purposes. Some videos may be purely educational, such as those we produce for the American College of Surgeons, and others may demonstrate the application of a particular product, like the ones we produce for medical device and pharmaceutical customers.

Ciné-Med is a full service video production resource. When we are contracted to produce a video project, our production team will handle all of the administrative work, from scheduling the video shoot with the surgeon and hospital, to closely managing the post-production process. You can be confident that our surgical expertise will result in the creation of a polished, professional video, ready for presentation, web or DVD distribution.

Surgical Video Samples

Open Surgery

Shooting open surgery is a cornerstone of Cine-Med's capabilities. We were founded almost 30 years ago as a surgical film production company. Our team of videographers use customized solutions with high definition video cameras to capture stunning images of open surgery. But don't take our word for it, let the images speak for themselves:

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Many of the latest innovations in surgery are thanks to minimally invasive techniques. However our goal remains the same - capture high quality imagery to best represent the procedure being demonstrated. We record the laparoscopic video to high quality digital video, and capture the outside views of port placement, specimen extraction and any actions that require simultaneous views.

Custom Video Production

Our video capabilities include more than surgery. Nursing education, surgical skills development, surgical device marketing, product use and application in-service videos, patient education, focus groups and interviews, live meeting documentation, and didactic medical teaching are just some of the applications we offer.

Multimedia & Web Development

Medical Practice and Meeting Registration Websites

Whether you need a meeting registration website, web-based CME activity, a professional website for your clinical practice, or a full-blown multimedia course, our team of designers and programmers will work closely with you to design and implement a product that meets your needs.

We take a consultative approach to develop and implement an innovative plan to reach your target audience, including scripting content, e-commerce and email marketing.

We also create numerous proprietary programs, both on CD and online, for the medical device industry, pharmaceutical companies and the National Institute of Health.

Interactive Multimedia Development

We are experts at converting your sales or customer training materials into interactive multimedia tools, deployed via the Internet. These tools can be used to solicit feedback from your trainees or compare results across levels of experience.

Surgical knowledge acquisition is conducive to a step-by-step learning approach. We have combined our expertise in surgery training with instructional design concepts to create compelling multimedia surgical education programs.

Ciné-Med worked with SAGES to create the FLS: Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery Program. The web-based multimedia component provides didactic learning for residents preparing to take the FLS exam and manual skills test.

Medical Publishing

Ciné-Med has over 20 titles in print, with more than a dozen in production at any time. Our signature series of surgical atlases, edited by Daniel B. Jones, MD, have elevated us as a competitor in the medical publishing industry. Another flagship publication, Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM), produced in collaboration with the American College of Surgeons, has earned accolades from the 1,500+ surgeons who have taken the internationally recognized ATOM course.

The majority of our books are enhanced with stunning color illustrations by our own certified medical illustrator, James "Brooks" Hart, CMI.

Do you have an idea for a medical textbook, atlas or monograph? Are you the copyright holder of a book previously published? We would be happy to consult with you on your concept or republishing needs.

Likewise, we can help you publish a monograph, article, pocket guide or other specialty document for audiences of any size, in a timely, cost-effective and high quality manner.

Medical Communications and Marketing

Ciné-Med has extensive experience in the medical device space, both with procedure adoption, device training and marketing. Need a video or a sell sheet on features and benefits?

We can also coordinate a series of webcasts or live events to get the message out.
