TIPS: Technology Innovation in Plastic Surgery Meeting
TIPS: May 31 - June 2, 2013
San Francisco, CA
Have you had the TIPS experience?
Join us for Technology Innovation in Plastic Surgery (TIPS). The goal of TIPS is to foster dialog among busy clinicians, investors, researchers, early adopters, and surgeons with a focus on innovation in order to develop new technology which better serves patients. TIPS is the only forum which brings together physicians with industry leaders in order to share information, solve problems, educate, and address unmet needs.
- Fosters the type of innovation and advancement that improves patient safety and care.
- Brings together physicians and industry leaders to share information, solve problems, educate each other and address unmet needs.
- Generates a dialog between stakeholders and stimulates the creation of new clinical, technical and healthcare solutions by shortening the time between invention, development and commercialization.
- Addresses procedures for both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery and the effectiveness of emerging technologies, and products.
“TIPS represents The PSF’s commitment to research and cooperation. This is the next step for innovation in technology – it is a wonderful forum where we are able to discuss face-to-face and in an unencumbered fashion, the pros and cons of what's being touted as great products. It also feeds into The PSF's mission of improving patient care through research and innovation.”
-Michael Neumeister, MD, PSF Immediate Past President
- Drive Innovation for Patients.
There are many areas in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery where significant tools remain undiscovered and urgent needs remain unmet.
- Optimize R&D Investment.
TIPS supports the medical device industry by highlighting what active clinicians want and need in their practice. The meeting provides a forum for attendees and allows them the opportunity to learn more about the features of these products and devices so they can differentiate hype from efficient medical technologies enabling successful technologies to prosper.
- Impact the Direction of Technology.
There is a constant stream of technologies introduced in plastic surgery. Clinical practitioners are oversold and inundated with "new" technologies, which has led to skepticism. TIPS changes this perception by targeting ‘early adopter physicians' and enables them to make an impact on the direction of technology investment into more meaningful areas.
