Co-founder of Proximie and Plastic Surgery Registrar
Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram is a surgeon, lecturer and clinical entrepreneur. She specializes in plastic surgery, working for the NHS in London, England, United Kingdom.
As an innovator, Nadine drew on her passion for global surgery and education to co-found Proximie, an augmented reality platform that allows doctors to remotely transport themselves into any operating theatre, anywhere in the world. Doctors may log in to visually and practically interact in an operation from start to finish and provide real-time interactive presence in assisting and instructing any operation and clinical encounter with a patient. By overlaying the live video feed with rich augmented reality content, Proximie aims to provide safe, accessible and cost effective surgery to every patient around the world. Proximie has enjoyed significant success with early adoption by major medical institutions and NGOs and has been covered by news agencies around the world. Dubbed by CNN the "Future of Surgery," Proximie has gone from strength to strength and won multiple awards including Foreign Press Association Science Story of the Year.
Nadine enjoys collaborating with innovators from many different countries and specialties to bring the benefits of technology to the wider population. She is a regular speaker at TED conferences, an Honorary Lecturer at University College London, the Chair of Innovation at Royal Free hospital, London, and is an NHS Clinical Entrepreneur. She sits on the Future of Surgery Commission for the Royal College of Surgeons of England and was recently awarded a British Empire medal for her services to surgery and innovation.
Alongside her work, Nadine spends her time with her husband and 3 children in London and supports global medical charity missions.
