We welcome you to join us in learning, connecting and sharing knowledge.

This 1.5-day program is designed to provide thoracic surgeons with the knowledge and procedure-specific skills needed to perform advanced thoracic procedures such as Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for pulmonary resections, robotic-assisted VATS, Uniportal VATS, and Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy (MIE). Surgical techniques are reviewed with a mix of didactic instruction and prerecorded case presentations. The hands-on labs provide an opportunity for participants to practice advanced thoracic surgery techniques while focusing on the safe and effective use of the latest Ethicon staplers, energy devices, adjunctive hemostats, and wound closure products.
