15th Annual Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS)

The Annual Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS) is the premier meeting of thought leaders in minimally invasive surgery for metabolic/bariatric disorders, hernia, foregut, and diseases of the colon. The conference is led by Executive Director Philip R. Schauer, MD, Cleveland Clinic, along with a faculty of internationally known advanced laparoscopic surgeons and bariatric specialists.

In addition to general didactic sessions, the conference will offer optional hands-on workshops in laparoscopic suturing and endoscopic interventions.

The Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS) is designed for general, colorectal, and bariatric surgeons with laparoscopic and open skills. Surgical residents and fellows are welcome at reduced rates. For the Bariatric/Metabolic Program, an interdisciplinary approach is utilized and all members of the bariatric team are encouraged to attend, including NPs, PAs, RNs, and other practice managers.
