Are you a surgeon looking for a way to bring 3D printing into your surgical planning, training or patient consent? Are you a healthcare professional with questions about the manufacturing and regulation of patient-specific implants? Or a start-up wanting to connect with clinicians?

In response to calls to bring together surgeons, radiologists, biomedical engineers, 3D printing technicians, medical modellers and healthcare professionals, with regulators, engineers, start-ups and suppliers, we have launched 3DMedLIVE in partnership between 3DMedNet and the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine. This new event aims to convene all members of the community who, together, can take 3D printing in surgical practice to the next level, and make it an everyday reality in many hospitals

Over two days, we’ll hear case studies directly from pioneering surgeons and researchers who are already utilising this technology in their practice, plus panel discussions and roundtables with regulators, manufacturers and funders. Leave the PowerPoint at home: 3DMedLIVE is dynamic, conversation-led and solution-focused, with the patient at the heart.

As well as providing a platform for the presentation and discussion of scientific ideas, offering the opportunity to connect with other innovators is core to the mission of 3DMedLIVE. In line with the ethos of 3DMedNet, communication is key to progressing this field, so over the two days there will be plenty of opportunities to network, meet new contacts and – of course – enjoy a drink at the 3DMedLIVE Cocktail Party!

Join the future-focused conversation on themes including:

  • Understand this growing area of personalized healthcare, part of the NHS 2020 vision

  • Innovations, techniques and applications of 3D printing

  • Quantifying the benefits for surgical training and patient consent

  • Understanding the process of patient-specific customized surgical models and implants

  • What is the regulatory landscape for customized medical devices, and how will the 2020 regulations change this?

  • Which route: outsource, service provider in-house or build your own 3D printing lab?

  • The business case for 3D printing; reducing costs and improving outcomes

  • Doctorpreneurs: how to get your idea to an MVP and fund your start up.
