China leads the world in minimally-invasive advanced technology

A young Olympic champion is volunteering to champion the pursuit of human health in a pioneering medical field. On Dec. 20, 2009, Xiong Ni became the first health spokesperson to appear at the World Conference of Endoscopic Physicians, promoting the application of endoscopic diagnostic tools and treatment technology worldwide to benefit human health.
Three hundred endoscopic training bases sent experts and leaders to this conference. Many international researchers and engineers in endoscopic technology applications and innovative companies attended the event to partake in the founding of the World Association of Endoscopy Physicians.
Conference chairman Professor Zhang Yangde noted in his opening remarks, "In this conference each session will include subject and academic reports, along with the announcement of the 2009 Endos Award in Medical Science & Technology. It aims to improve technology and product development of endoscopic medicine, to discuss standardization of testing and training of endoscopy doctors around the world, and promote a continuous and steady development of world endoscopic medicine. "
Endoscopic diagnosis and treatment, an established modern technology, has developed into a new discipline, endoscopic medicine, with talented young endoscopy doctors around the world. Currently, there are over ten million middle-aged doctors who can perform endoscopic diagnosis and treatment. This new medical treatment method has created a new specialized industry.
Xiong Ni noted the importance of endoscopic medicine for athletes. "Endoscopic medicine is closely related to sports. More and more athletes tend to choose minimally invasive surgery, which minimizes trauma, results in fast postoperative recovery, leaves small or no scars, and has many other advantages, so that many athletes can quickly reappear in the arena," said Xiong, winner in men's 3m springboard at the 26th Olympics in 1996 and winner of both the single and synchronized men's 3m springboard at the 2000 Olympics.
