Sponsored by ASCRS and APACRS – and moderated by Bonnie An Henderson, MD (incoming ASCRS President), Edward J. Holland, MD (ASCRS Program Chair), Graham D. Barrett, FRANZCO (APACRS Immediate Past President), and Ronald Yeoh, MD (APACRS President) – this session will feature five cases with speakers from ASCRS and APACRS presenting their approach to each case.
“Management of complicated situations is always a highlight for me at the ASCRS meeting,” says Dr. Henderson. “This year, we are fortunate to have a joint meeting with APACRS. In the East Meets West Symposium, the surgeons from ASCRS will be sparring against the surgeons from APACRS in their approaches to complex cases. I invite you all to come watch the fun!”
