Tales of the Unexpected  
Dealing with Unexpected Surgical Findings

On behalf of General Surgeons Australia and the Organising Committee, it is with pleasure that we invite you to join us in Melbourne for the eighth GSA Annual Scientific Meeting - Tales of the Unexpected, to be held from 29 September - 01 October 2016 at the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne.

Tales of the Unexpected - Dealing with Unexpected Surgical Findings will explore surgical dilemmas where the surgical team reaches a dead-end and does not know which way to turn - a situation all Consultant Surgeons, no matter what stage of their career they are at, will experience. Tales of the Unexpected will unearth strategies and processes, and present findings on a broad range of topics via a program that focuses on key sub-specialty areas of General surgery - Upper GI, HPB, Colorectal, Surgical Oncology, Trauma and Vascular. Each session will conclude with a surgical 'case from hell' and valuable discussion. Click here to view the program

Each session and area of speciality has been designed to draw on experience from world-leaders in their fields, including experts from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and The Alfred Hospital. Additionally, the program includes keynote addresses from international experts: Mr Brendan Moran, UK - a world renowned Colorectal Surgeon... Click here to continue reading the Convenors' Welcome.
