Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 19th edition of G.K.N.M Hospital’s Annual workshop - liveSURGE. The focus this year will be on the structural heart disease with emphasis on the aortic valve and the root. The theme is ‘Repair and Restore’.

The aim of our workshops have always been to impart knowledge and skills to every surgeon who can put it into his practice the very next day. It helps to elevate oneself to the next level with the available resources and no expensive technology. We have taken all efforts to put together a scientific content with 6-8 live cases , lectures and videos with total focus on the subject. The program is structured in a manner to address key issues and grey areas to get clarity and consensus.

Please note it is on a Friday and Saturday ( 22nd and 23rd November 2019) to help surgeons spend more time on the second day and get back at leisure.

Thanks for the trust and faith imposed on us and we are confident your time invested will be worth in every way.
