GBIHPBA Annual Scientific Meeting, Leamington Spa

The 16th International Oesophago-Gastric Symposium will take place on 9 March, 2018 in London.
An expert faculty will discuss the optimal techniques of performing minimal access cancer, anti-reflux, achalasia, bariatric and gallstone surgery. Expert surgeons will share their experience and lead discussion among participants about the merits of 2D laparoscopic visualisation, versus 3D with hands-on laparoscopy, versus 3D with robotic assistance, versus flexible endoscopic surgery.
There is a discounted rate for trainees and registration can be made online at
