The 18th Surgery of the Foregut Symposium at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As in previous years, a “first-class” group of world renowned gastrointestinal surgeons, gastroenterologists and oncologists have been invited to share their expertise and updates on the most recent technological and therapeutic advances in this steadily evolving field. Since 1999, this 5 days course has become one of the most prestigious forums in the field of foregut surgery with attendees and faculty travelling from around the globe.

The 2019 scientific session will feature a full day presenting the 6th International Conference on Fluorescent Guided Imaging Surgery, under the leadership of Dr. Takeaki Ishizawa from Tokyo, Japan. This is one of the most fascinating and promising developments in the field of surgery. The second day will be devoted to foregut surgical management. On the 3rd and 4th day, the scientific sessions will concentrate on the most recent advances, controversies and developments in the field of Bariatric and Metabolic surgery including a full day on single anastomotic procedures. To continue our tradition, we will feature the Robert Herrmann MD Annual Lecture that will be delivered by Horacio Asburn, MD, on “Current Trends in Minimally Invasive Pancreatic Surgery”, and the Walter E. Pories MD, Annual Lecture delivered by Michel Gagner, MD on the “Can a PEG for Feeding Purposes, Treat Weight Loss in Severely Obese Subjects? Seriously?” In addition, and back to popular demand, we will host a fifth day of Live Surgery that will be presented at the David Jagelman Conference Center at the Cleveland Clinic Florida campus in, Weston.
