Since a great congress day always ends with a keynote lecture, make sure you check what we have in store for you. Our 2023 edition comes with keynote speakers with years of medical experience and remarkable achievements.
Keynote lectures will be held, for the first time in 3 years, in a fully on-site format, providing you with the opportunity to interact with international world-renowned speakers and medical students with common passion and interests, thus breaking all cultural barriers.
Since we set a goal for this year to bring science closer to the future generation of physicians, we decided to provide free access for all participants to our keynote lectures. Embrace the full congress experience and take part in as many top events with world-renowned speakers as you can.
The human brain is known to be nourished by one of the richest networks of blood vessels in our body, representing 20 to 25% of the blood flow. Acknowledging the brain’s need for high blood perfusion in order to perform its activity, the preservation of its vascular pathways is of utmost importance in order to prevent any damage of both the sensory and the motor functions. When it comes to cerebral revascularization surgery, which has the purpose to manage a stenosis or an occlusion of a brain vessel, strokes represent a common complication which occurs due to manipulation or temporary clipping of the arteries of the brain.
David Langer, MD holds the position of Vice President of Neurosurgery for Northwell Health’s Western Region and is referred to as one of the few cerebral bypass surgeons in the U.S. He has brought groundbreaking contributions to the field, including the mastering of the excimer laser-assisted non-occlusive anastomosis (ELANA) technique which is a extracranial-to-intracranial (EC/IC) bypass believed to almost completely eliminate the threatening risk cerebral ischemia.
His expertise in neurosurgery has revolutionized treatment for complex neurological disorders, maintaining an active practice in spinal disease and benign brain tumors, including acoustic neuromas and meningiomas. Furthermore, he has internationally spoken on vascular disorders, such as aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the brain, while activating as a peer reviewer for two renowned medical journals, “Neurosurgery” and “World Neurosurgery”.
As the Chair of Neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, 𝐷𝑟. 𝐿𝑎𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑟’𝑠 compassionate care and dedication to his patients have earned him widespread recognition. He has been featured in the acclaimed Netflix docuseries “Lenox Hill” and “Emergency NYC”, which highlight his expertise and provide an intimate look into his work as a leading figure in the medical community. Being a Professor in Neurosurgery and Radiology at Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Dr. Langer remains engaged in medical education and represents a source of inspiration to many students.
Join this keynote in order to get acquainted with Dr. David Langer, whose work represents a message on success and leadership for your medical career.
Anaplastology, an unique field in medical technology, is where art meets science in designing functional and extraordinarily realistic prostheses for injuries that harm not only the body, but the soul. Its goal is treating patients who suffer after cancer treatments, physical ailments, trauma, or any other reason they may have lost a body part.
This year you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep in the historic and prehistoric beginnings of this occupation, the scope of practice and where the profession is heading along with Allison Vest, MS, CCA. She’s one of the 40 board-certified clinical professionals in the world, the Immediate Past President of the International Anaplastology Association, while owning and operating Mosaic Prosthetics in McKinney, Texas for the past 17 years.
“The anaplastology is the light at the end of the tunnel”, Allison revealed. “Turning that mirror around is that last missing piece.”
On TLC’s newest medical show, Body Parts, she takes us through the journey of replacing someone’s body part with prosthetics. The functionality of facial and somatic prostheses will be presented with before and after photos demonstrating achievable results. You’ll also get to see how what she does differentiates from a plastic surgeon’s work and discover her one-of-a-kind methods.
Join us at this Keynote event to find out more about the wonders of anaplastology and get inspired by our lecturer’s passion for changing lives!
Brain surgery has evolved over time and new ways of thinking lead doctors to important shifts in how they care for patients. Emerging from ancient techniques such as trepanation, clinicians can now cut into the human brain, not with a knife in the conventional sense, but with beams of radiation.
Gamma Knife radio-neurosurgery is a disruptive technology invented by the Swedish neurosurgeon Lars Leksell. Its indications are benign and malignant tumors, vascular malformations, trigeminal neuralgia, essential tremor, epilepsy and psychiatric disorders, among many others.
In this Keynote Lecture, Constantin Tuleașcă, MD, PhD, PD-MERc will guide you through the incredible world of radio-neurosurgery. His contribution to the treatment of pain and outstanding work in effective biological dose in Gamma Knife radiosurgery of cerebral arteriovenous malformations made him the only Romanian to have been awarded twice by The French National Academy of Medicine.
Dr. Constantin Tuleașcă, PhD, PD-MERc will discuss how this powerful, minimally invasive technique can be used either upfront, or in hybrid approaches, together with microsurgery. You’ll also learn how radiobiological effects differ from each treated indication to another.
Dissociation is often considered to be quite rare, yet prevalence in general and psychiatric populations is surprisingly high.
There is a great deal of misinformation and misunderstanding about what dissociation is, how it occurs, the link with trauma, and more importantly, what can be done when it is seen clinically.
Running The CTAD Clinic, a national referral centre for dissociation, as well as working with the UK National Health Service for over 20 years, Dr Mike Lloyd is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who specializes in complex trauma and dissociative disorders.
With an impressive career in adult, child, adolescent and paediatric mental health, Dr Lloyd will introduce you to the fascinating universe of the human mind, where science gives shape to the most unknown paths.
We invite you to join this keynote lecture centered on this unique and interesting field, where Dr Lloyd aims to cover all your curiosities, emphasizing the importance of being able to notice, manage and work with dissociative disorders in general and specialist medical
Take the chance and benefit from a variety of clinical examples, which will show you that the proper management of dissociative episodes can lead to reduced frustration from staff and patients and a greater chance of a successful appointment and build trust for the patient going forward!
Only the children know what they are looking for’ said Antoine de Saint-Exuperi.
And often, when children become patients, they look for a doctor who understands their suffering and knows how to treat them with care, compassion and empathy, protecting their innocence and giving them the courage to face their hardships.
Ana Margarida Neves, MD, MSc, PhD has been Associate professor of Paediatris in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon and Coordinator of the pediatric Allergology Unit of the Department of Paediatrics.
She is sub-specialized in Paediatric Allergology and has dedicated her career to this impressive and vast field, working to transform her talent and passion into performance.
Paediatric Allergology Unit was accredited in 2019, as European Training Center by the European Academy of Pediatrics – EAP and the Union of European Medical Specialties – UEMS.
She was also a visiting fellow in the Necker University Hospital, in Paris, in the Department of Immunology, carried out in collaboration with the Cornell University.
We invite you to take part in this fascinating keynote lecture, where paediatrics meets the remarkable challenges of immunology!
