Preview Technology Before It’s FDA Approved

tech-con-3After an extremely positive response in 2016, STS/AATS Tech-Con 2017 is again focusing on cutting-edge technologies and new developments in cardiothoracic surgery. The schedule has been changed for 2017 so as not to compete with Annual Meeting sessions.

“There are a lot of things flying under the radar in terms of development, and you’re not going to hear about them anywhere else,” said Tech-Con Task Force Co-Chair Mark F. Berry, MD. “Attending Tech-Con is the most efficient way for every cardiothoracic surgeon to know what their practice is going to look like in a couple of years.”

Two different tracks are planned for adult cardiac surgery and general thoracic surgery. The adult cardiac sessions will look at innovations in mitral valve disease and atrial fibrillation management, aortic valve disease and endovascular techniques, and ventricular assist devices. The general thoracic sessions will discuss precision thoracic surgery, endoscopic and robotic techniques, and what health care looks like in the 21st century.

Hear about new, cutting-edge technologies that will change your practice at Tech-Con 2017.

A highlight of the day will be the Shark Tank session, during which entrepreneurs pitch their innovative cardiothoracic surgery products to the audience, as well as a panel of experts in medical device development.

Register today at the STS Annual Meeting website. Continuing medical education credit will not be offered for Tech-Con programming.
