Led by Dr. Osman Ahmed, the aim of the workshop is to identify fundamental initiatives to advance trauma care and training in the nation, specifically focusing on approaches to hemorrhage control. This initial meeting will highlight the innovative approach by UChicago’s trauma surgery and interventional radiology sections in managing acute hemorrhagic injuries with minimally invasive therapies and novel imaging systems to reduce the morbidity of surgery and improve patient outcomes.
