Olympic Winner Xiong Ni, Spokesperson for Endoscopic Medicine -- Chinese Minimally Invasive Advanced Technology Top in the World

HONG KONG, Dec. 22 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- A young Olympic champion volunteered to champion the pursuit of human health in a pioneering medical field. On Dec. 20, 2009, Xiong Ni became the first health spokesperson appearing at the World Conference of Endoscopic Physicians. It's been an honor to have him promote the application of endoscopic diagnostic tools and treatment technology worldwide, benefiting human health.

"Endoscopic medicine is closely related to sports. More and more athletes tend to choose the minimally invasive surgery, which is unique in that it 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 Ni, the winner of the 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.

This conference was held under the Organization Committee of the World Conference of Endoscopy Physicians; the Organization Committee of the 19th General Assembly Session of Chinese Endoscopy Physicians; the National Evaluation Committee for Endoscopic Skills, Ministry of Health; the Chinese Endoscopy Doctors Association; the Evaluation Committee for the Endos Award in Medical Science & Technology; China Endoscopy News Net and other organizations. Three hundred endoscopic training bases sent their experts and leaders to attend this conference. Many international researchers and engineers in endoscopic technology applications and innovative companies attended this event to partake in the founding of the World Association of Endoscopy Physicians.

The vice-director of the Ministry of Health, Huang Jiefu, made a speech as a host of this event. He said that China will implement the issuing of an "Endoscopic physician license" to regulate the medical profession in this area. He said, "This license promotes the systematic development for Chinese endoscopic diagnosis and treatment. To train and test endoscopic doctor before they work in clinical fields will guarantee patient care and pay respect to human life."

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.

Five years ago, the National Examination and Evaluation Committee for Endoscopic Skills was founded. At the time, the Chinese Endoscopy Doctors Association had issued Endoscopy Doctors Treatment Skills Evaluation Standards, Endoscopy Doctors Treatment Skills Training and Testing Center Construction Standards, and had issued standards for Management Regulation of Endoscopy Doctors Treatment Skills Training and Testing Centers. Over 300 National Endoscopy Training and Testing Centers of the Ministry of Health have been founded to conduct training for 970,000 endoscopy doctors and skilled professionals.

Chairman of this conference Professor Zhang Yangde said: "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. We are looking forward to creating a team of international experts with extraordinary endoscopic skills. Together we will gain recognition from the international medical field by implementing innovative technologies, methods, and concepts. As rapid development of precise instrument processing, the biomaterial industry, information technology and electronics, and other disciplines, science and engineering achievements have penetrated into the field of endoscopic medicine."
