SSO’s ninth annual Fellows Institute, cosponsored by the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (AHPBA) and the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS), took place November 18 – 20, 2019 in Houston, Texas. This important event consists of both didactic sessions and a hands-on laboratory component.

Please save the date for next year: November 9-11, 2020 in Houston, Texas.

The Fellows Institute 2019 included three specialty-specific tracks. Here is an overview:

Breast Surgical Oncology:  This track’s topics include ultrasound & biopsy, live model scanning, oncoplastic techniques, RFID, lesion localization and other innovative techniques.  New in 2019, there will be a session on the management of the axilla. 

Surgical Oncology:  This track that includes case-based technical didactics and practical hands-on laboratory skills covering open and minimally invasive colorectal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, and adrenal surgery (including robotic surgery), liver ultrasound, isolated limb perfusion and infusion for regional melanoma, sarcoma surgery, and cytoreductive surgery with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy for peritoneal malignancies. 

Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB): This session covers surgery on the liver and pancreas, focusing in tumors and minimally invasive techniques. Hands-on laboratory time will be combined with the surgical oncology track for a comprehensive and collaborative experience. 

Thank you to all of the 2019 Fellows Institute sponsors and partners whose support makes this experience possible.
