Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas is honorary president of the course.

The course also includes lectures on the uniportal subxiphoid approach, as well as how to teach uniportal approaches to residents and fellows.  The surgeons of Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital as well as Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas , the inventors of subxiphoid and uniportal approaches (respectively) will be there.  The surgeons of Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital will be sharing their experiences of performing over 8000 uniportal resections a year, as well as presenting a live case direct from Shanghai during the conference.

Also – this conference is unique in offering an opportunity for surgical assistants, and scrub nurses to gain insight and share experiences in uniportal techniques with concurrent courses scheduled for operating room nurses.  Both sections spend the last day of the conference in the wet lab applying newly learned techniques.
