While surgeons and other healthcare professionals need to know what the future of healthcare will hold and how it will affect the way they practice, surgeons find it important to review current trends in techniques and managing complications. A review of current advances in complex general surgery enables surgeons to translate better patient care. It is important for surgeons to understand these changes and how it will affect the care provided to their patients. Live lectures and discussions in person will allow the attendees to gain the knowledge of the ongoing education related to MIS. Post conference each individual should be able to do the following: describe the surgical techniques for hernia and abdominal health, colorectal and foregut, review surgical outcomes for minimally invasive procedures, identify and describe management of complications for minimally invasive surgical procedures, understand the best approach for abdominal wall reconstruction, identify what is on the horizon for colorectal surgery, describe the management of GERD in obesity and identify surgical quality and value based care. The attendees will be asked to complete an evaluation on the key concepts presented.
