The on-site technical exchange meeting between Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute and Shandong University Qilu Hospital Orthopedics Department was successfully held
On the afternoon of March 8th, Jia Chunsheng, Vice President of Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute (our foundation's research unit), Liu Zhicheng, General Manager of Yinfeng Health Technology Service Co., Ltd., and Zang Chuanbao, Director of Cryogenic Medicine Research Center, were invited to participate in a hospital enterprise cooperation intention exchange meeting organized by the Orthopedics Department of Qilu Hospital, Shandong University. Liu Xinyu, Executive Deputy Director of Orthopedics and Director of Spinal Surgery at Qilu Hospital of Shandong University, Zhu Lei, Deputy Director of Orthopedics and Director of Hand and Foot Surgery, Cheng Lei, Deputy Director of Spinal Surgery, Xu Qingjia, Deputy Director of Hand and Foot Surgery, and more than 30 professional doctors and technical experts from the orthopedics department participated in this meeting.
At the meeting, the attending experts listened to the research progress of our hospital in the development of tissue engineering materials and medical devices, and discussed our cooperation intentions in the orthopedic application direction of our research products. They had in-depth exchanges on joint cartilage repair, spinal fusion repair, and other directions. Our collaborating expert, Professor Sun Wenquan from Shanghai University of Technology, specially attended this exchange meeting.
The R&D team of Yinfeng Low Temperature Medical Research Center has developed multiple forms of engineering materials using donated and clinically abandoned tissues of the same type, which have broad application prospects in filling and repairing various tissue defects. The orthopedic expert team of Qilu Hospital has shown strong interest in our hospital's related research and has reached an intention to further clinical cooperation.
According to incomplete statistics, there are currently 5-6 million patients with bone defects in China each year. However, the actual number of orthopedic surgeries using bone defect repair materials for treatment in China is only about 1.33 million per year. There is a strong demand for bone defect repair materials in clinical practice, and there is a huge gap in clinical demand that needs to be filled. We look forward to the rapid transformation and application of our research products in clinical practice, providing higher quality technical products and services for orthopedic patients.
