From February 20th-21st in Celebration, Florida, we are hosting a forum that focuses on Pediatric and Adult Congenital Electrophysiology. This course will be featuring Florida Hospital’s own Bhavya Trivedi, MD who is accompanied by his esteemed co-course directors, Anthony McCanta, MD, and Vincent Thomas, MD. This event is intended for an audience of Physicians, Residents, Fellows, and Nurses who specialize in congenital electrophysiology or heart disease. This course will be featuring some exciting state-of-the-art topics that deal with, innovations in arrhythmia surgery, new methods in cardiac rhythm management, and a showcase of presentations of new procedures, research, and much more. Learning objectives include the following:
Hiring in the medical field often involves the challenge of finding a balance between medical and technical skills, as well as hospitality, friendliness and openness. Whether you’re in charge of hiring for a medical device company, hospital or general healthcare organization, it’s important to find employees who can not only hold their own in an information-rich industry but also stand out to clients and patients for their stellar work ethic.
According to a Health Research Funding report, the rate of robotic surgeries is increasing by 25 percent annually, showing that the procedure is continuing to make its mark in the medical industry and the number of new innovations is growing along with it. Most recently, a new type of flexible robot is bringing more precision and flexibility to surgical operations including head and neck surgeries. Other robotic devices are designed to operate on the abdomen, joints and chest, but they don’t work well with the head and neck operations due to the lack of flexible movements.
According to a recent CBS News article, the flexible robot could be “the next revolution in surgical advancements” by making certain types of operations less invasive, resulting in faster recovery times for patients. Surgeons at the University of Pittsburg Medical Center were the first to use the flexible robotic system.
Verily keeps popping up in the news, but why is it making all of the headlines? Verily Life Sciences was recently announced as Google’s new life sciences company. The company is joining forces with Johnson & Johnson’s medical device company, Ethicon, to create Verb Surgical with the goal of developing robots and surgical platforms aimed at helping surgeons in the operating room.
There has continuously been a need to implement a training process for robotic surgery in order to guarantee surgeons are fully prepared to enter the operating room. We developed a comprehensive robotic surgical training curriculum called the Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery (FRS) program to help accomplish this goal. Our past FRS post gives you a look into what it took to develop it, but what skills will you and your team take away after using it?
Our 3rd Annual Florida Hospital Research Forum runs from April 21-22, and offers the opportunity for researchers from around Central Florida to present their medical research and clinical research to a group of their peers. The conference will be held at the Florida Hospital Orlando, Creation Conference Center, featuring Keynote Speaker Bill Evans and Guest Speaker will Kiminobu Sugaya.
There will be presentations on a wide range of subjects from physical therapy to oncology, and everything in between. We will also be featuring posters throughout the conference area displaying our researchers’ hard work. This conference is a great opportunity for Health and Science professionals to collaborate with like minded individuals on innovative procedures and technology.
Did you know that year after year more than 50,000 doctors and surgeons come to the Florida Hospital Nicholson Center from all over the world to learn the latest clinical and surgical techniques? Our training facility is one of the largest and most experienced medical training centers of its kind in the U.S., and below we have answered a few questions and provided additional information about some of our offerings you may not know about.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS), a sleeping disorder involving cessation or significant decrease in airflow and breathing, affects around 12 million Americans. The Nicholson Center’s 3rd Annual OSAS Surgery International Course is designed to showcase the newest surgical procedures available to treat patients who cannot tolerate non-surgical treatment options.
