Webinar 8/23/2019: Introduction to 3D Printing in Hospitals 🗓

Scheduled Event


Fri, August 23, 2019

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PDT


The webinar introduces the audience to the world of in-hospital 3D printing programs. Robert will share insights and how-tos with interested parties in a direct and intimate setting online.

The technology has been used in recent years for patient consults, medical student training, pre-operational planning, surgical simulation, intra-operative reference, and post-operative assessment. The goal of this webinar is to share insights, how-tos, and pitfalls of ramping up a 3D printing program within a patient-care institution from square-one. The history of point-of-care manufacturing, clinical and operational workflows, patient case applications, and technology choices are discussed.

This webinar is the first in a series which will take the audience from the essentials of “How do I get started?”; to medical image segmentation practices for soft and hard tissue; to the economics and reimbursement options of in-hospital based 3D printing.

A certificate of completion will be provided by 3DHEALS for attendees.

3D Printing Engineer, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, USA

Bio: Robert is an experienced biomedical engineer, who has managed hospital-based 3D printing programs. He has acted as a consultant non-profit medical centers looking to invest in the 3D printing space in the Southwestern, Midwestern, and Southeastern regions of the United States. He works closely with research teams in designing and producing prototypes, and with clinical teams to identify anatomy, design and manufacture models, and apply quality standards to the entire process. Focused on capturing tangible cost-savings, he works with business development, finance and accounting, and with supply chain to track the utilization of these in-house centers versus outsourcing to external vendors.


9:00-9:30 Presentation
