We are a centre of expertise for the development of technologies in the area of colorectal, vascular and hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) disease, with a focus on improving surgical care through technological innovation. Our aim is to ensure patients in need of surgical care have access to new technologies that have been rigorously tested to ensure they are safe, effective, and represent value for money to the NHS.
We bring together clinicians, academics, scientists, industry partners, patients and the public to work together to advance patient care by accelerating new science and technologies into patient benefit.
We would like delegates to:
Understand the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to technology development for surgery
Understand the key success factors for clinical adoption of surgical innovation
Gain an overview of potential surgical applications of existing and/or new technology and how research collaborations accelerate the journey to patient access.
