3rd Annual University of Rochester Surgical Symposium

3rd Annual University of Rochester Surgical Symposium



This Continuing Medical Education activity provides a forum for surgeons, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other health care professionals to gather and discuss the latest trends, experimental methodologies, and key equipment in the surgical field. As new surgical techniques are perfected and new equipment comes to the forefront of medical use, there is persistent need for providers to have efficient means for providing acute care, as well as long-term follow-up and management of post-surgical patients. The science of specialized surgery continues to evolve and challenges the surgical professional to stay contemporary. Therefore this symposium will review contemporary issues, research findings and new surgical strategies and trends within the last year which are essential to the local care of the surgical and post-surgical patient.

 At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

 - Discuss the current supply and demand problem related to surgical care across the US.
 - Describe the rational for the “transition to practice” fellowship.
 - Describe the role of ERCP in the management of the retained CBD stone.
 - Identify patients who would benefit from cholecystosomy tube.
 - Discuss how resuscitation strategies have changed over the last several decades.
 - Explain how social media can be used appropriately in a surgical practice setting.
 - Describe the surgeons role in limiting exposure to opioid pain medication.
 - List treatment options for chronic mesenteric ischemia.
 - Explain how surgical complications should be communicated to patients and families. 
 - Describe how surgical palliation can impact quality of life in the cancer patient
 - Discuss current approaches to the management of GERD.
