Introduction

Welcome from the Chair

We have the pleasure to announce the 15th International Bernd Spiessl-Symposium.
Under the Theme “Innovation meets Art” there will be a focus on face and identity as every year as well as the digital future of medicine. Raising new fields at the interface between Life Sciences and MedTech will be given a platform to nurture interdisciplinary collaboration between medical doctors, scientists, engineers, start-ups and the private industry.

Innovative and visionary technologies in Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery will be presented from Friday, 14 June to Saturday, 15 June 2019 at the University Hospital Basel, Zentrum für Lehre und Forschung (ZLF), Hebelstrasse 20, Basel, Switzerland.

The International Bernd-Spiessl Symposium is one of the leading conferences for Innovative and Visionary Technologies in Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery. The concept unites practical science with highly qualitative academic value which is recognizable in its diversity on topics such Face & Identity, Next Generation of Education, Care Concepts of the Future, Smart Implants, Internet of the Body, Robotics, Archeomedicine, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Technology, Implantology & Navigation, Clefts, 3D Printing and interesting Free Topics.

There is a saying: Art leads to scientific and medical innovation – science and medicine inspire art. This is the spirit of the conference. Art performances and music improvisation will be an integrative part of the conference.

Traditionally, our cultural program starts on Thursday evening with an aperitif and a Swiss vernissage. The next evening we invite you to our favorite Gala Dinner at the Wildt’sche Haus. On Saturday, we start our cultural racer, the guided tour through the Art Basel 2019. The congress program ends, as every year, with our traditional Garden Party.

We look forward to meeting you at our exciting scientific event.

Prof. Dr. med. Dr. ned. dent. Dr. h.c. Hans-Florian Zeilhofer

Bernd Spiessl

Bernd Spiessl, born 1921 in Nittenau/Germany was a significant professor in the range of maxillofacial surgery. He received a doctorate in medicine and dental technology in 1952 (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich) and 1960 (Universität Hamburg). In 1965 he was appointed to the first extraordinary chair for maxillofacial surgery at the Basel University.

He was an outstanding personality, a passionate and excellent surgeon and scientist. With his innovative and unconventional ideas, Bernd Spiessl brought important progress to medicine, mainly in the field of head and neck tumor surgery. He was one of the first scientists who used osteosynthesis as method of treatment in traumatology and defective surgery (facial).

1972/1973 he was president of DGMKG (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Mund-Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie), the German Association of Specialists for oral and maxillofacial surgery. Bernd Spiessl became doctor emeritus in 1987, he died in 2002.

In memory of and in in honour of Bernd Spiessl, every annual symposium “Innovation meets Art” starts with a memorial service.
