It wasn’t long ago that the concept of holding an anatomically correct model of your own heart in your hand was foreign. Today, surgeons are beginning to order replicas of patient organs to plan and practice the most precise procedures. Experts on this panel will discuss the clinical and market expectations for taking surgical planning to a new level.

Why do some nutritional therapies work for some and not others? Are there ideal nutrients that will keep me healthier? Can certain foods reverse my particular disease? Some say the answers to these questions lie in our genes. Experts on this panel will sort through the hype, the science, and the business of nutrigenomics.

At a time when the future of healthcare is at the center of debate over public policy in the United States, “it’s essential that innovation remain at the core in the delivery of medical care,” Susan Bernat, general manager of strategic marketing at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic told Convene.
An opera singer who underwent two double-lung transplants had the performance of a lifetime as she shared the stage with her donor's daughter.
An insulin pump that functions like an artificial pancreas ranked No. 1 on Cleveland Clinic's list of the Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2018. The announcement of the entire list will be made Wednesday as part of the Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit.
A panel of nearly 100 Cleveland Clinic doctors and scientist selected the 10 innovations from more than 150 nominations.
A team of Case Western Reserve University students' idea for wearable tech to monitor heart patients won the recent Cleveland Medical Hackathon.
An emerging company that uses vision technology to predict and help prevent the development of Alzheimer’s won “The Challenge” during the Medical Innovation Summit in Cleveland.
Genomics expert J. Craig Venter doesn’t mind scaring people by giving alarming statistics on death.
Forty percent of men and 24 percent of women between the ages of 50 to 74 years old in the United States will not reach the age of 75. A third will die of cardiovascular disease and another third from cancer, Venter said Monday at the Medical Innovation Summit.
Augmented reality goggles that allow surgeons to see a 3-D image of their patient's organs will soon be used. And, physicians will use a medical device similar to a GPS to navigate surgical tools through a patient's circulatory system.
The Cleveland Clinic is holding its annual Medical Innovation Summit this week. One speaker who took the stage is soprano Charity Tillemann-Dick. She received two double-lung transplants at the Clinic and has gone on to perform across the United States, Europe and Asia.
Across the country, hospitals are struggling to do more with less. Rising costs for pharmaceuticals and medical supplies are making healthcare more expensive and leaving healthcare providers searching for ways to care for patients without going into the red.
