Thank you for attending the 2024 Scientific Meeting held at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara Santa Barbara, January 19-21, 2024. Your responses are critical to future planning of our educational activities. 

This program was designed for practicing surgeons involved in the care of patients.  It was meant to provide an update regarding treatment in general and subspecialty surgical practice and to provide a means for surgical students and researchers to report their research results.

At the end of this program, physicians will be able to:
  • Assess the latest research and be able to incorporate changes to strategies to improve patient care.
  • Discuss and debate latest developments and improvements in surgical practice and be able to determine appropriate applications.
  • Describe the most up to date research on alternative surgical approaches to common treatment practices and apply as appropriate.
