3D printing technology has been transforming medical surgeries for the past years. In this webinar, Dr. Florian M. Thieringer and Shiden Yohannes will be presenting an overview of the evolution and advantages of customized cranio-maxillofacial (CMF) solutions. Additionally, they will discuss how personalizing your CMF can enhance predictability. Also with a variety of materials and applications, it provides a faster, more accurate surgical experience.
It is also a challenge for medical stakeholders to choose the right 3D technology for their clinics. You can also learn how to choose the right technology based on your speciality and facilities.
Watch the webinar to hear about the power of 3D printing in the medical industry.
Florian M. Thieringer is an Oral- and Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgeon and a Medical 3D Expert, with focus on Tumor-, Trauma-, Reconstructive- and Orthognathic Surgery, located at the University Hospital Basel and University of Basel, Switzerland. Florian M. Thieringer is currently senior surgeon and Privatdozent for Oral and Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital Basel. He is the Head of the Medical Additive Manufacturing Research Group (Swiss MAM) at the University of Basel's Department of Biomedical Engineering (UNIBAS DBE). He is an internationally recognized expert for computer assisted surgery (CAS) and medical additive manufacturing, extensively exploring and promoting the integration of virtual surgical planning, 3D printing and other innovative technologies at the point-of-care (POC) – like additive manufacturing of patient specific implants (PSI) in various (bio-) materials, including bioprinting & regenerative surgery. Since 2016 Florian Thieringer has been Co-Director of the multidisciplinary 3D Print Lab at the University Hospital of Basel. Since 2020 he is Co-Principal Investigator of the innovative MIRACLE 2 project (Minimally Invasive Robot-Assisted Computer-guided LaserosteotomE). This 12 Mio Swiss Francs research project, funded by the Werner Siemens Foundation, aims to develop a robotic endoscope to perform contact-free bone surgery with laser light. Perfectly fitting patient-specific implants will be designed in AR/VR and will be produced by intra- and extracorporeal 3D printing.
Shiden Yohannes, Master in medical engineering , with a focus on implementing additive manufacturing in a wide variety of medical applications. His mission is to make access to additive manufacturing as easy as possible for medical device manufacturers, laboratories and hospitals.
