Speaker: Paul Cederna, MD
Title: The Bionic Man: Not Too Far Away
There are over 1,800,000 people living with limb loss in the United States. Functional restoration for these patients is severely limited by the ability to provide them with a prosthetic device that moves intuitively and provides sensory feedback. We have pursued a combination of engineering and surgical developments to optimize prosthetic rehabilitation for these patients sustaining limb loss.

About Dr. Cederna: Paul S. Cederna, MD is the Robert Oneal Professor of Plastic Surgery, Chief of the Section of Plastic Surgery, and Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan who specializes in reconstruction of complex wounds. By combining his clinical training in general surgery, microsurgery, and plastic surgery and background in biomedical engineering, he is able to incorporate creative solutions with technically challenging operations to solve the most difficult problems resulting from trauma, cancer, or burns.

Academically, Dr. Cederna has a very active research enterprise directing the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan. Dr. Cederna has received more than $28,000,000 in direct research funding, authored over 185 scientific manuscripts, published 22 book chapters, presented his work over 700 times at national and international meetings, and has been asked to give over 350 extramural presentations. He has received over 68 national research awards.

Dr. Cederna has been President of the Plastic Surgery Foundation, Chairman of the Plastic Surgery Research Council, President of the American Society for Peripheral Nerve, President of the Michigan Academy of Plastic Surgeons, and is the Vice-Chairman of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
