Dec 11, 2020

This week we are delighted to welcome Dr Todd Ponsky to the Podcast.  Dr Ponsly is a renowned Paediatric Surgeon, Professor of Surgery and Director of Clinical Growth and Transformation at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the US.

As a paediatric surgeon, Todd focuses on always trying to find the least invasive way to solve a child’s medical problem. 

He specialises in minimally invasive surgery with a focus on neonatal disorders and hernias.  Todd was the first to perform and report single port surgery in children and modernised the methods of the laparoscopic paediatric hernia repair.

Dr Ponsky believes that each child is unique. As such he spends a great deal of time listening to their questions and concerns and addressing them. Allowing him to understand the best approach to improve their health.

When not providing clinical care, Todd works at the forefront of innovation, by making leading-edge knowledge available to surgeons internationally. Unfortunately, there are great disparities in knowledge across the globe, and not all surgeons have access to the same knowledge as Todd and his colleagues.

He founded GlobalcastMD and Stay Current in Surgery, both of which serve to modernise the way in which surgery is taught and learned.
