🌟 Visit to Materialise, Malaysia. 14 February 2024 🌟

February 28, 2024

Mr Lee had the immense privilege of returning to Materialise Malaysia. Five years seems a short time but in between we had the global pandemic but still find an enthusiastic workforce and what expansion. This visit wasn’t just a mere walkthrough; it was an intellectual feast that stimulated minds and sparked innovative conversations.

Sharing Insights on Patient-Specific Guides and Implants. Mr Lee was honoured to give a talk on the role of patient-specific guides and implants in facial deformity surgery. The discussion revolved around how these custom solutions enhance surgical precision and improve patient outcomes.

Engaging in a Focus Group with Clinical & Design Engineers. The highlight of the visit was undoubtedly the focus group session with clinical engineers. We delved deep into the intricacies of zygomatic osteotomies and genioplasties, comparing the nuances of plastic versus metal designs and debating the merits of onlay techniques versus expansion or advancement strategies. The exchange of ideas was both enlightening and refreshing. We also explored the diverse features and variations in splint designs, contrasting them with clinical practices to uncover areas for innovation and improvement. The conversation extended to guided Le Fort single-piece and segmental procedures, discussing the clinical requirements versus the digital approach to these complex surgeries.

A Fusion of Clinical Expertise and Digital Innovation.Β This visit to Materialise was more than just an academic endeavour; it was a confluence of clinical expertise and digital innovation. Engaging with professionals who are at the forefront of technological advancements in surgery was both humbling and inspiring. The discussions we had not only broadened our horizons but also cemented our commitment to revolutionising patient care through technology.

A Big Thank You.Β I extend my deepest gratitude to Materialise for hosting this stimulating event and to all the brilliant minds who shared their knowledge and insights. The journey towards innovation is a collaborative one, and experiences like these are invaluable in shaping the future of medical technology. Let’s continue to innovate, inspire, and impact lives positively. Together, we can redefine the boundaries of what’s possible in healthcare.
