S5: #043: Prof. Stefano Bini on the Development of Digital Tools for Orthopaedics

48 minutes

In this episode I spoke with Professor Stefano Bini, he’s an Orthopaedic Surgeon at UCSF and the Chair of the Digital Orthopaedics Conference. That’s right: "Digital Orthopaedics".

I met Professor Bini through Nick Adkins and Mike Ryan (both of whom were previous guests on this program episodes 34 and 36 respectively) and they told me that Prof. Bini was working on some really forward thinking approaches. He is taking things to a new level by focusing on digital tools specifically in the orthopaedics vertical.

We all know orthopaedics is a very resource intensive and expensive area of healthcare, and Prof Bini believes it is a great place to drive innovation in the clinical care system. Need proof? Well, on this episode, he tells us exactly why orthopaedics is a great place to focus our digital efforts, and he goes through some of the work being done by companies to transform the delivery of orthopaedic care.

We dive into virtual reality (VR), telemedicine, 3d printing, artificial intelligence (AI), wearables, apps and more.


Today's Topics:

  • Why focus on digital health in orthopaedics?
  • Prof Bini's ideas on Dr. Topol's book “The Patient Will See You Now”…and how the patient/physician relationship is evolving
  • What opportunities exist in digital solutions for orthopaedics?</li?
  • What are companies doing to transform this important area of healthcare?
  • How can sensors provide passive data for patient reported outcomes?
  • What role do asynchronous tools have in telehealth?
  • How are companies like Under Armour innovating for their users?
