Featured speakers include some of the biggest names in minimally invasive surgery including Dr. Robert Cerfolio, Dr. Thomas D’Amico and Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas.

Dr. D’Amico is organizing the event – which will surely be one of the highlights of the 2015 conference circuit.  (Alas! No live surgery).
