Bethesda Foundation Inc.
Keeping with the LYCEUM’s tradition of thought provoking speakers we are pleased to welcome Dr. Hugh Herr, Biomechanics Pioneer and founder and Director of the Herr Institute for Human Rehabilitation in Cambridge, MA. His research program seeks to advance technologies that promise to accelerate the merging of body and machine. His book, Second Ascent: The Story of Hugh Herr, an athlete's struggle to overcome a profound physical disability -- the amputation of both lower legs after a tragic accident. The challenge of top-level rock climbing and the astounding courage of one young man.
The proceeds from this year’s LYCEUM will benefit the development of a Robotic Center of Excellence at Bethesda North Hospital. Robotic surgery is an innovative technology that allows surgeons to perform routine and complex surgeries through a few small openings; decreasing invasiveness and improving patient outcomes. Bethesda North Hospital is embracing this next frontier in minimally invasive surgery by adding the newest and most advanced robotic surgical system, the daVinci Xi.
