The AIS Channel (Advances In Surgery) project in Barcelona shares the latest updates in surgical techniques with working professionals in the scientific community as well as training those of tomorrow. The AIS concept was conceived by Dr. Antonio M. Lacy and his team at the Hospital Clínic
in Barcelona, which is renowned throughout the world for their pioneering innovations in laparoscopic surgery.
The AIS Channel is a new interactive approach to communicate advances in surgical expertise and makes use of all technologies available (website with HD and 3D videos, live conference streaming, video archive of past congresses, etc.) to afford the user every conceivable way of researching new techniques beneficial to patients and healthcare professionals from anywhere, at any time and on any internet-enabled device. All of the knowledge shared at the conference will be accessible free through the AIS Channel. It has already huge coverage in the global surgical community.
The Mayor of Barcelona, Xavier Trias, remarked that the city is known for its sport and its tourism, but also for being a city that invests in innovation, culture, knowledge and creativity. Both Barcelona City and Olympus, with the presence of Akihiro Taguchi, President of Olympus Medical Systems Corporation, have insisted in the fact that AIS Channel complies with all these values.
