On January 28, 2017, LMPSU held its 5th annual conference on advances in surgical technologies. We were able to invite 8 guest speakers, each of whom is an expert within the field of robotics, reconstruction, imaging or transplantation.
We started off the day with a talk on the applications of 3D printing in craniofacial and cleft surgery and wrapped up the conference with a presentation on ex vivo repair of lungs for transplantation. Fresh fruits and snacks were served during intermittent breaks and all attendees joined us for lunch in the stone lobby.
We had a great time learning about the various advances in surgical technologies and their future prospects in Canada’s health system. Attendees asked a multitude of excellent questions, eliciting very thought-provoking discussions between the guest speakers and the audience.
The LMPSU extends the warmest gratitude to our guest speakers and conference attendees for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us in making this year’s conference, Beyond the Lancet, a great success.

Thank you and we hope to see you again at next year’s conference!
