13:30-14:30 Session 2A: Workshop: Preoperative Templating in the Digital Era: Who is in charge?

Panelist: Brad Miles

Robotic surgery and PSI rely on accurate templating and segmentation. These tasks are customarily performed by software engineers. The editing role of the surgeon has become blurred. The live templating of imageless robotic and advanced navigation is equally complex, involving shape matching and 2D/3D imaging. Experts will present the issues and algorithmic solutions. A live debate will follow.

Location: Main Auditorium
13:30-14:30 Session 2B: Workshop: Additive Manufacturing: Explosive Growth and Potential

Panelist: Jonathan Greenwald

Additive manufacturing has rapidly progressed from custom implants to include on-site rapid prototyping of instruments and 3-D printing of complex deformities. The development of new materials and techniques is exciting, yet not validated to date. Industry leaders, engineers and clinicians will present the state-of-the-art technology and a debate will follow.

Location: Workshop Room
14:30-15:00 Session 3: Workshop: CAOS in Oncology

Current Best Evidence for Computer Navigation in MSK Oncology

Location: Workshop Room
15:00-16:00 Session 4A: Workshop: Integrated Digital Health Care Systems: An Arms Race for Data Control

Panelists: Michael Conditt, Brad Miles, Ward Servaes and Matthias Verstraete

From start-ups to giant corporations, there is a furious push to acquire and own the whole episode of care data for surgical cases. Personal Health Information form large scale registries, educational physiotherapy videos, office PROMs and hospital financial information are packaged in user friendly patient apps and practice dashboards. The boundaries of ownership and responsible use are still nebulous. Entrepreneurs, and expert clinicians will present and debate.

Location: Workshop Room
15:00-16:00 Session 4B: Workshop: Augmented Reality/Mixed Reality in Orthopaedic Surgery: Distant Fantasy or Tangible Application?

Panelists: Danny Goel, Kathy Haddad, Hisham Iqbal and Nicole Wake

Imagine the weaving of 3-D elements acquired by various diagnostic tests into your visual field at surgery. From 3-D FEA grids to mobile neurovascular elements to the trajectory of sharp instruments. The use of VR visual glasses may become a necessary standard. Or is the field suffering from too much hype? Recognized developers and pioneer clinicians will present the current data and debate the clinical merit, boundaries and timeline.

Location: Main Auditorium
16:30-17:30 Session 5A: Workshop: Economics of Sector Growth in Advanced Technologies in Orthopaedic Surgery: The Business of Medicine

Panelist: Alex Malarchuk

Advanced technologies are gaining in recognition by clinicians and are used by hospital corporations for marketing purposes. But there are still major hurdles before they can become accepted standards of care. What will it take to grow the economic sector to the point where the new technologies become affordable enough to allow widespread usage? Only then can large scale registry data validate the merit of the technological advances. A panel of economic experts, hospital CFO and practicing clinicians will present the issue and offer insights for possible growth strategies.

Location: Workshop Room
16:30-17:30 Session 5B: Workshop: Patient Specific Predictive Modeling: How Good Is Artificial Intelligence?

Panelists: Brad Miles and Peter Verillo

Deep learning, machine-based algorithms, and artificial intelligence may have the potential to be highly predictive of outcomes. These methods are now used in areas as diverse as biomechanical modeling, functional outcome prediction, implant component templating and episode of care cost analysis. Experts will present the current applications, advantages and limitations. A panel debate will follow.
