Many sessions and symposia at this year’s ASGBI Congress focus on expanding the abilities of the surgeon.
We at Cook Medical are especially excited. A surgeon with broadened opportunity is a benefit to everyone: hospitals, the industry and, most importantly, patients. These are a few events that have already caught our eye.
- Surgeons as innovators (30 April, 11:00, auditorium) This event includes many respected surgeons and scientists. At 11:25, watch Professor Gordon Carlson talk about a unique way to treat intestinal failure.
- Meet the expert: surgical management of parastomal hernias (1 May, 11:15, the hub) In Professor Roger Motson’s hour-long session, he’ll share how he fixes herniated stomas and safeguards against recurrence.
- Biologic materials in surgery (1 May, 17:30, Queens 1) This Cook-sponsored symposium will delve into the science of biologic grafts. Visit this symposium and discuss the ideal applications for biologic technology.
- Innovative colorectal surgery in the 21st century (2 May, 11:30, auditorium) The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland sponsors this session, and we’re sure they’ll spark great discussions.
Staying active in the community of your peers is important. Keep the momentum going after the conference closes.
