World-renowned surgeons will focus their talks on research perspectives in surgery and challenges faced on the road to becoming a successful practitioner.
Graduating from University of London, earning several PhDs in Biomedical engineering and prestigious awards for his scientific achievements, developing interests for artificial implants as well as circulatory support systems, Professor Stephen Westaby established himself as a renowned heart surgeon, working at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for the last 35 years.
One of his greatest accomplishments was performed in June 2000, his patient becoming the oldest survivor with an electric heart pump in the world. Professor Westaby currently holds the lowest reported type A dissection mortality in the NHS (6% in over 10 years), finding himself among the most distinguished members of European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery as well as the American Association for Thoracic Surgery and also author of his fascinating bestseller biography ``Fragile Lives``.
Professor Liverneaux graduated from Reims Hospitals and Hopitaux de Paris. He proceeded to earn Masters degrees in both Biomechanics and Neuroscience, and a PhD from the University of Paris. His past positions include the President of Robotic Assisted Microsurgical & Endoscopic Society (RAMSES) and President of the French Society of Microsurgery. Currently, he is the General Secretary of the French Society for Hand Surgery and Chairman of the Department of Hand Surgery in Strasbourg University Hospitals.
His research focuses on minimally invasive wrist surgery and robotic surgery of the peripheral nerves, employing the latest advancements in nanomedicine. His expertise in endoscopic telemicrosurgery also allowed him to modernize some orthopedic procedures—turning classic approaches into minimally invasive ones. Classic incisions were large, being not only cosmetically detracting, but also involving higher risks of sepsis and local adherence formation which resulted in poor patient outcomes. It is the contributions of incredible specialists like Professor Liverneaux that showcase the breathtaking application of robotics in the field of microsurgery.
