The future of surgery will be shaped by a host of factors, from the rise of artificial intelligence to the evolution of hardware and sensors. Incredible leaps are being made in computing power, miniaturization and connectivity, empowering surgeons to reduce risks and improve patient outcomes. But the surgical field has been slower to adapt to new technologies than the broader consumer economy. Outdated regulation may be partly to blame but there has also arguably been a lack of focus on digitizing surgery in a way that is widely accessible. For example, minimally invasive robotic surgery has been around for years but it is still typically unaffordable. If digitizing surgery really is the way forward it must be for the many, not the few. The FT Digital Surgery Summit will examine how next-generation surgical technologies are transforming performance in the operating room. Crucially, the event will also address the issues of cost, scale and access that come with taking surgery into the digital era. Thought leaders from across the healthcare landscape will provide valuable insights on key issues with a balanced focus on opportunities and challenges. Join us in San Francisco on March 21, 2019 to find out what the digitization of surgery could mean for you and your organization, both practically and strategically.
