Called Multisociety Advanced Skills Training in Emergency Surgery (MASTERS), this course was co-sponsored by the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS), American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) and EAST.

Sharona Ross, MD, FACS, represented SAGES for this course, during which she presented an expert lecture on robotic repair of paraesophageal and diaphragmatic hernias, as well as the intraoperative utilization of fluorescent imaging to aid in anatomic orientation.

Dr. Ross also served as a moderator for the hepatobiliary/pancreatic-focused section of the MASTERS Course, leading and promoting discussion of topics such as complicated gallbladders, necrotizing pancreatitis, and much more.

“I was honored to share the stage with so many amazing surgeons,” said Dr. Ross, “and I am eager to see hospital groups invest in their robotic programs so that surgeons may embrace robotics as an aid in the management of trauma and acute care surgery.”
