Advancing Surgical Technique
Throughout the year, the Advanced Surgery Academy hosts events in more than a dozen specialties within the surgical environment providing hands-on and classroom-style forums to dialogue with peers over new techniques. Surgeons, residents and nurses benefit from the comprehensive training programs designed to engage the entire surgical team.
The Speakers Bureau consists of innovative surgeons and other healthcare professionals from a range of specialties and regions across the country. These professionals are prepared to speak to their peers about specific procedures, personal case studies and how they use hemostats, sealants and other advanced surgery products to achieve success.
