Together with the NIHR Surgical Medtech Co-operative, and Translate Medtech, we are hosting a workshop to identify the key unmet needs in liver, biliary and pancreatic surgery including resection and transplant. Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgery is a core theme of the NIHR Surgical Medtech Co-operative, whose aim is to develop new concepts and protocols for new technologies that are applicable across the NHS.
This is very much an all-inclusive workshop where clinician, industry and patient involvement is imperative. We hope to debate and establish a few focused areas of potential unmet need and future collaboration in HPB surgery.
The workshop will feature presentations from HPB experts, open discussions and group conversations around key themes including:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Laparoscopic surgery
Chaired by the Professor Giles Toogood, Consultant Hepatobiliary and Transplant Surgeon, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, confirmed speakers include:
- Professor Peter Lodge, Consultant Hepatobiliary Surgeon, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
- Professor Chris Halloran, Consultant Pancreatobiliary Surgeon, Liverpool University
- Mr Shahid Farid, Consultant Liver Transplant Surgeon, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
Key objectives of the workshop are:
- Help identify key unmet needs
- Discuss ideas for potential solutions
- Network with leading clinicians and researchers within the field
- Develop novel ideas for research projects
- Establish new collaborations
A full agenda for the day will be available shortly.
Places are limited and prior registration is essential. Lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day.
