You know I'm a dab hand with the Dremel and I'm in the medical technology field too. Nothing wrong that a few Brazilian rosewood cleats, some good quality hide glue, a couple of bone nuts and some Elixirs can't fix. I have the flexible Dremel attachment and the routing apparatus to hand and plenty of clamps.
Seriously man, you have my very best regards and good luck wishes in this. All power to you and your family.
Thinking about you.
