Final BHI ‘Talking Heads’ Seminar for 2016
Associate Professor Susanna Proudman, Head of Rheumatology Unit at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and Professor Peter Hewett, Head of Colorectal Surgery at TQEH each gave seminars outlining current projects in their respective areas of research. Susanna spoke about Autoimmune Connective Tissue Diseases, with a focus on scleroderma and the development of a new screening test that does not require an echocardiogram. Peter then talked about new techniques and technologies in minimally invasive surgery in colorectal cancer, including a discussion on the potential benefits of robotic surgery.
