Rising Media, Inc. announced that Oren Tepper, M.D., director, Craniofacial and Aesthetic Surgery, Montefiore Health System and assistant professor of Surgery, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, will present the opening keynote address at Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo. The industry’s leading business-to-business event will return to the Javits Convention Center in New York City for its fifth annual conference, where it will run from March 14-15, 2017. Thousands of additive manufacturing professionals are expected to attend the event for two days of education, exhibitions, special events, and networking opportunities.
Dr. Tepper, a pioneer in using 3D printing technology in plastic and reconstructive surgery, recently made international headlines as part of the surgical team that successfully separated then 13-month old conjoined twins, Jadon and Anias McDonald, at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in New York. Dr. Tepper’s keynote address on March 14th at 9am, titled “How 3D Printing and Virtual Surgical Planning Made it Possible to Successfully Separate Conjoined Twins,” will highlight the evolution of this technology and the critical role it played in this landmark case.
“We’re honored that Dr. Tepper is joining us at Inside 3D Printing next week to share his tremendous experience and insight into the use of 3D printing in plastic and reconstructive surgery for nearly a decade,” said Matthew Finlay, CEO of Rising Media. “His presentation will provide our attendees with a first-hand look at cutting-edge medical applications for 3D printing, in the same way that the rest of our faculty will address new strategies and techniques for technology in manufacturing, metals, and business.”
Following Dr Oren's keynote is a full track on the advances 3D Printing is bringing to the medical profession, chaired by Bunny Ellerin, Co-Founder & President of NYC Health Business Leaders and Director, Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Management Program at Columbia Business School.
The event’s keynote program will also feature Tyler Benster, General Partner at Asimov Ventures, who will discuss “How Startups are Disrupting the Factory with 3D Printing” (March 14th at 1pm); and Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant at Wohlers Associates, who will address “The Future of 3D Printing” (March 15th at 9:50 am).
The event has earned a well-deserved reputation for its world-class conference program, which this year will feature day-long dedicated conference tracks on 3D printing applications in four distinct areas: Metal, Medical, Manufacturing, and Business.
