6:30 - 7:00 pm Registration, Networking & Refreshments
7:00 - 7:10 pm Welcome
7:10 - 7:50 pm Precision Orthopedics. What 3D Printing Can Bring to Orthopedic Surgery - Dr. Denis J. Marcellin-Little, School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis
7:50 - 8:30 pm Prints for Patients, A Comprehensive Approach to Additive Manufacturing in Healthcare - Shannon Walters, Manager, 3D and Quantitative Imaging Laboratory - Stanford University
Dr. Denis J. Marcellin-Little: Dr. Marcellin-Little is a veterinarian who is board certified in surgery and sports medicine/rehabilitation. He held an academic position at North Carolina State University from 1994 to 2017. He became Professor of Small Animal Surgery at UC Davis this Summer. Marcellin-Little’s clinical practice focuses on total joint replacement, the management of limb deformities, and on limb sparing (the management of complex orthopedic problems such as bone tumors and fracture complications). Marcellin-Little has been using polymer 3D printing since 2002 and metal 3D printing since 2003. He has mentored approximately 15 engineering graduate students who worked on various aspects of medical 3D printing. 3D printing first enhanced orthopedic assessments and surgical planning. 3D printing has now expanded to allow for fabrication of a range of novel orthopedic implants and to develop bone replicas for mechanical testing. Marcellin-Little is establishing a medical modeling and manufacturing lab at the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis.
Shannon Walters: Shannon Walters is an innovation enabler and workflow optimization enthusiast. At Stanford 3D and Quantitative Imaging Lab, Shannon works closely with healthcare providers, researchers, and educators to enable effective health visualization. Recent innovations are of particular interest to Shannon such as 3D Printing, immersive volumetric visualization, and concise reporting of changes over time.
