The 2018 Calvin & Mayho Tanabe Address
BIONICS: THE EVOLUTION OF MAN AND MACHINE
Albert Chi, M.D.
Associate Professor of Surgery
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23
Tickets $20 (Students $10)
OHSU’s Albert Chi, M.D. has seen the destruction of war first hand as a trauma surgeon serving in Operation Enduring Freedom. He’s observed countless lives forever altered through the loss of limbs. Now, after years of research, this self-described “surgical electrician” has pioneered an amazing robotic arm that is revolutionizing the field of prosthetics. He and one of his patients will demonstrate how the merging of medicine, software and technology is creating a bright future of thought-controlled bionic limbs.
