A Portland Institution Since 1948

The Portland Surgical Society is the only professional organization of its type in the Portland area. The society is an important educational forum for surgeons as well as a showcase for the achievements of many of our trainees. Perhaps most importantly, it provides a wonderful opportunity to renew the camaraderie and unique sense of fellowship that unites us within our community of surgeons.

The organization will only remain successful and vibrant with your support. The most important support you can provide is by participating in meetings and recruiting new members. If you have a new associate in your practice, please encourage them to complete a membership application.

Necessity, the Mother of Invention: From Bionic Arms to COVID

Session 2 Abstracts (4 papers)

Speaker: Albert Chi, MD, MSE, FACS is a critical care physician, trauma surgeon, retired Navy commander and biomedical engineer. His research has been revolutionizing the field of prosthetics, which was motivated by observing the destruction of war and the countless lives forever altered through the loss of limbs. This journey led him to become one of the nation’s leading experts in developing advanced, inexpensive prosthetics using 3D printing technology. This technology has served children with upper extremity congenital limb loss and the development of a 3D-printed exoskeleton for individuals that have experienced stroke. In the face of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Chi’s lab created a 3D-printed ventilator capable of basic and advanced support with the goal of providing a technology accessible and effective to any community that needed it. 

Questions: Dr Philbert Van, OHSU
