CME Dinner Florida Hospital Heartland

July 23rd, 2014

Dr. Ross and Dr. Rosemurgy traveled to Florida Hospital Heartland on July 23rd, 2014 to speak to a group of physicians on Minimally Invasive Techniques and Pancreatic Cancer. Dr. Ross focused on the progression of techniques for many operations from an open approach to a LESS approach. Dr. Rosemurgy spent time elaborating on the treatments for patients with pancreatic cancer, the progression of the disease and patient outcomes. The event was well attended and we hope to see many of these physicians at our HPB Summit Meeting on September 6th and the Abdominal Surgeons Meeting on October 31st.

Pancreatic cancer can benefit from the use of LESS surgery, as it can help to remove benign and malignant tumors. Those that are able to remove the entirety of their cancer with LESS face a good prognosis.

Dr. Rosemurgy has an extreme interest in pancreatic cancer and has acquired some of the largest data sets worldwide on minimally invasive surgery for the disease. He co-founded the Southeastern Center for Digestive Disorders & Pancreatic Cancer Advanced Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery Practice in 2012. Dr. Rosemurgy was recognized by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for his interest and work in pancreatic cancer.
