Andrej Thurzo

Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University, SSRM, Vice Dean, Representative
He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of the Comenius University in Bratislava, majoring in dentistry (2006), where he works at the Clinic of Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery and at the Center for Simulation and Virtual Medical Education. He is the founder of the specialized dental clinic Sangre azul, the technological company 3Dent medical and the Professional Society for Innovations in Medicine. He is the co-founder and first president of the Slovak Society for Regenerative Medicine and is the recipient of the prestigious ITAPA eGovernment leader award from 2006. He was the first in Slovakia to create and deliver stereoscopic 3D lectures when teaching medics in the subject of maxillofacial orthopedics and introduced 3D printing into the practice and education of medics in general medicine and dentistry. In jaw orthopedics - orthodontics, he is a pioneer of so-called invisible dental appliances and artificial intelligence in Slovakia, which he was the first to put into practice in the Slovak Republic and today they have become a regular part of clinics and research. In addition to this paradigm shift in jaw orthopedics, he is the leader of a multidisciplinary group of passionate experts, focused on the development of applications of 3D printing and artificial intelligence in medical practice.
  • Digital medicine in the doctor's office   |   ITAPA HEALTH & CARE 2024
    The lecture will focus on the latest trends in digital health, artificial intelligence and telemedicine. Innovative solutions and tools that are transforming healthcare delivery and improving patient outcomes will be presented.

    The lecture will touch on the following topics:
    - Introduction to Digital Health and Telemedicine: Definition, Trends and Benefits for Patients and Healthcare Professionals.
    - Practical applications in the KORFS clinic: Presentation of successful examples of telemedicine implementation in different fields of medicine.
    - Telemedicine tools and platforms.
    - Benefits and challenges of telemedicine.
    - The future of digital health.

  • AI in Dental monitoring of maxillo-orthopedic patients   |   ITAPA HEALTH & CARE 2023
    The combination of artificial intelligence and telemedicine has changed dentistry beyond recognition in just three years. However, AI is mainly responsible for the shift in the paradigm of treatment with dental braces in jaw orthopedics - orthodontics. Today's algorithms can usually detect tooth decay, poor hygiene, chipped teeth or gingivitis from a home video scan. This scan is taken by the patient himself at home with his own mobile phone. AI helps doctors in practice today to segment CBCT data, automate cephalometrics and communicate with patients. The lecture summarizes 5 years of practical clinical experience with the telehealth solution called "Dental Monitoring", which Docent Thurzo, a pioneer of invisible braces, implemented at the Sangre Azul clinic. Today, AI in radiology, but also generative AI (such as ChatGPT or Midjourney) fundamentally change not only the clinical aspects of dentistry, but also its forms and the content of education at medical schools.

    In this context, two quarantined publications were also published: Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Dental Education: A Review and Guide for Curriculum Update and Where Is the Artificial Intelligence Applied in Dentistry? Systematic Review and Literature Analysis
  • Individualization of medicine through 3D printing   |   Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2015: No Borders

    Why should you attend the lecture?
    Print your own cells or bioprinting. Evolution in health care, individualization of medicine, expected changes in the quality of human life? What changes will it bring? Will it change the medicine only or will it bring a wide progress to society?

    Individualization of medicine - its customization to the unique patient - is the next logical evolutionary step in health care. Using 3D scanners today we can easily record the specific anatomy of thepatient and through a 3D printing we can " materialize " for example individualized implants, respecting the fact that everybody is unique literally every-body is unique. Apart from individualized implants, it is the 3D printing with cells, which changes the appearance of medicine more than anything known to us for last 1000 years. Printing patient's own cells - bioprinting - is the beginning of an era of regenerative medicine , which among other things will also raise significant societal change. Today expected changes in quality of life, longevity, but also opens pandora's box of "enhancements" - upgrades of the natural and healthy physiological functions or properties of the human body.
