2018 MCW & MD Anderson Cancer Center Endocrine Surgery Symposium

Milwaukee, WI US
February 23, 2018

This educational activity is designed to highlight current issues in the management of disorders of the thyroid and adrenal glands through didactic lectures, panel discussions, and case presentations. Invited speakers include well-known academic surgeons who are well-published in their respective fields and who can provide up-to-date summaries of the topics.

Surgical endocrine disorders are increasing in incidence and the diagnosis and management are increasingly complex, often requiring multidisciplinary care by endocrinologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, and surgeons. Recent studies suggest that the majority of operations are being performed by low-volume surgeons, not in a multidisciplinary setting, and that there are improved patient outcomes when operated on by a high-volume surgeon.  This workshop will highlight the multidisciplinary approach and current national and international guidelines for these complex diseases, including guidelines that have been published within the past year, in an effort to further the discussion on optimal patient care and the importance of multidisciplinary, high-volume care. The intent is for clinicians attending to be able to better develop multidisciplinary programs at their own institutions.
