Panel: Special Closing Session: Inspiring Innovation - Transcending and Amplifying Development Through Technology and Research
Objective(s): Historically, plastic surgeons have been on the leading edge of medical innovations, and recent advances in techniques and technologies have only scratched the surface of what promises to be a new era in patient care. Innovation is a key component to advancing clinical practice, maintaining quality outcomes, and enhancing patient quality of life; one that crosses all specialties and geographic boundaries. We are looking at a future that holds enormous opportunities for innovation - from new diagnostics to new devices. Plastic surgeons are involved in the development of current and emerging technologies and innovations poised to transform the clinical practice of plastic surgery and the entire medical landscape. What are these innovations and what impact will they really have on how we practice medicine? What opportunities lie ahead? Innovation is the future - how do we ensure we continue to fuel the innovation engine that will power what is on the next horizon?
