Meet the experts creating new strategies for treating MSK disorders
October 3, 2014
Our October research workshop will examine how new approaches to materials processing and manufacture can help us develop effective therapies which are customised to the patient and disease state, aiming for delivery with minimum disruption – ideally allowing the patient to go home the same day:
- presentations from experts, with practical experience in implementation
- updates on the latest scientific progress
- regulatory views
- clinical perspectives
- opportunity to raise questions with experts from across the value chain
- networking opportunities bringing together delegates from across the sector
Some of our invited expert speakers:
Andy Stafford is a Cosmetic Dentist at the Cosmetic Dental Clinic.
Dr Stafford offers a full range of implant solutions from one tooth to full mouth rehabilitations. Many solutions are offered using the ‘teeth-in-an-hour’ concept where patients can have a fixed aesthetic solution on the same day implants are placed.
Dr Stafford has placed over 300 dental implants to date with excellent rates of success.
Dr Stafford will be giving a presentation on dental CAD/CAM.
John Wilkinson OBE is the Director of Devices at MHRA.
Prior to this John worked for Eucomed, the European medical technology industry association, where he was Chief Executive.
His earlier experience included the role of Director General of the Association of British Healthcare Industries and a number of roles in the medical devices industry, both in the UK and the USA, with Becton Dickinson and the BOC Group.
Mr Wilkinson will be giving a presentation on regulation and the innovator.
Martyn Snow is Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (which is 1 of only 5 purely Orthopaedic Hospitals in the country).
He is very active in the research community and is currently chief investigator in a number of on-going trials. His current areas of interest include, the use of stem cells in cartilage repair, improving tendon healing in rotator cuff repair and functional improvements following ACL reconstruction.
Mr. Snow has designed his own fixation device for use in ACL reconstruction, which is currently in use by orthopaedic surgeons worldwide.
Mr Snow will be giving a presentation on arthroscopic techniques for the shoulder.
Dr Deepak Kalaskar is a Teaching Fellow at University College London.
Dr Kalaskar has a multidisciplinary background in engineering, chemistry and biology, with special interests in surface coating technologies.
He heads the Msc course in Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive surgery at University College London (UCL) and is actively involved in research on nanotechnology and tissue engineering solutions for artificial organs such as intracranial stents, breast Implants, synthetic nose, ear, skin and bone tissue engineering.
Dr Kalaskar will be giving a presentation on 3D printing of lumbar fusion cage – a project funded by MeDe Innovation’s Fresh Ideas Fund.
