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.
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!
