Looking at Tomorrow’s Technologies

Hear about new technology that will change your practice at Tech-Con 2018.

Tech-Con pulls back the curtain on innovative products

Learn about cutting-edge technologies and new developments in cardiothoracic surgery at STS/AATS Tech-Con 2018. Held Saturday, January 27, the day before the opening of the 54th Annual Meeting, Tech-Con will offer separate tracks for adult cardiac and general thoracic surgery.

Tech-Con also will feature a Shark Tank session, in which entrepreneurs will pitch their innovative cardiothoracic surgery products to the audience and a panel of experts in medical device development. Representatives of several companies developing robotic technology also have been invited to present.

“I think not attending Tech-Con leaves you a bit antiquated,” said Tech-Con Task Force Co-Chair James D. Luketich, MD. “So many new techniques and technologies will be coming out at Tech-Con. You may not be doing these procedures today, but they’re what we’re going to be doing tomorrow.”

Tech-Con registration is separate from Annual Meeting registration. Register today at sts.org/annualmeeting. Continuing medical education credit will not be offered for Tech-Con programming.
