Medtronic mission statement is “Alleviate Pain, Restore Health and Extend Life” and this motto guide us through our daily activities, events and strategies. Having this in mind, Medtronic created the Pan-American Summit to embrace the most prominent surgeons of Latin America and North America and address their concerns, needs and future vision when it comes to bariatric and metabolic surgery.
We are heading to our 3rd edition of the Pan-American Summit that, this edition, will take place in Orlando between March 12th and 13th. It will take only 1.5 day of your time to take the most of what is trending in education, technology, surgical techniques, complications management, patient pathway from specialists from Latin America and North America. This year we are going to focus on INNOVATION and on the following topics:
Session 1: What Got Us Here Won’t Get Us There
Session 2: Building and Maintaining and Effective Practice
Session 3: Nonresponders and Weight Gain
Session 4: Revision Surgery
Session 5: Management of Short and Long Term Complications
Session 6: Controversies in Bariatric/Metabolic Surgeries
Session 7: Challenging Patients
The event does not follow the traditional set of congress and lectures. It innovates the conventional congresses by creating an environment that approximate the speakers and the audience through an open communication, scenery and means that allow a direct conversation between attendees to create real time benchmarks and to make conversations flow during the whole event.
We do expect that you have a quality time, enjoy the lectures, network, learn from our new technologies and come back with brand new and innovative ideas to your daily practice.
