Dean of the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine Ralph Clayman, MD, will present, “Digital and Simulation Technology: Impact on Medical Education and Surgical Practice,” on Thursday, June 20 in Keefer Auditorium from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

A pioneer in minimally invasive techniques, Clayman revolutioned kidney and urinary tract surgical procedures and is listed among the “Best Doctors in America” for urology. In 1990, Clayman and his associates performed the world’s first laparoscopic removal of a kidney for a tumor, as well as the first laparoscopic removal of a kidney and ureter to treat cancer.

Clayman established the nation’s first fellowship program in minimally invasive urology in 1984. He has written multiple textbooks and more than 400 peer-reviewed papers and chapters on laparoscopic and percutaneous urologic surgery. He is the co-founder and co-editor of the Journal of Endourology and has 14 minimally invasive surgical instrumentation patents to his name.
