Top researcher and entrepreneur: Hans-Florian Zeilhofer

Hans-Florian Zeilhofer is a top researcher – and he is an entrepreneur. With AOT, he founded a startup in Basel that has developed a special robot: robot Carlo cuts bones with a laser – a revolution in surgery.
Zeilhofer had spent 20 years researching the topic before he founded the company. The professor emeritus at the University of Basel is a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery,. The Bavarian explains why he put down roots in Basel, why doctors shoud love their patients and what he is up to in the canton of Jura. And he tells about his involvement in the Olympic Games next year in Tokyo.
