As in previous years, a “first-class” group of world-renowned surgeons, gastroenterologists and oncologists has been invited to share their expertise and updates on the most recent technological and therapeutic advances in this steadily evolving field. Since 1999, this course has become one of the most prestigious forums in the field of foregut surgery with attendees and faculty travelling from around the globe. This important educational activity also provides a forum for interaction between individuals involved with all aspects of foregut, metabolic, bariatric and fluorescence guided surgery, as well as the opportunity to converse with colleagues and key opinion leaders.

New this year will be an extensive review of artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotic surgery, and how surgeons from around the globe are incorporating these tools of the future into their practices today!
