Innovations in cardio-thoracic surgery - State of the heart technology

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Dr. Frank R. Halfwerk is a Technical Physician in Cardio-Thoracic Surgery at Thoraxcentrum Twente, Medisch Spectrum Twente. In 2020, Dr. Halfwerk was appointed Assistant Professor and Principle Investigator of the Cardiac Surgery Innovations Lab, TechMed Centre, University of Twente.

With innovations in cardio-thoracic surgery we predict and optimise patient outcomes with cutting edge technology. This includes surgical technology assessment ranging from design, clinical testing, and evaluation, to cardiac (p)rehabilitation: Better in, is better out! Finally, with medical simulation we need proficiency in surgical skills before practice on actual patients.
