Prof. Dr. med. univ. Milomir Ninković, the world’s famous expert in the field of plastic surgery, presented a lecture titled "Solving Problems in Plastic Surgery through Innovation and Creativity" at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Banja Luka on March 16, 2019.
“The main purpose of this lecture was to motivate young people and show them that medicine develops daily. If you come across a problem and define it, you can look up the solution. There are always better solutions than those offered in textbooks, or those suggested by the older colleagues. Both creativity and innovation are important”, said Prof. Ninković after presenting the lecture to students, doctoral students and specialists in surgical branches of medicine.
