International Evidence-Based Guidelines on Minimally Invasive Pancreas Resection (IG-MIPR)

Date and Location TBD

About Event

 Overview

This conference will focus on international evidence-based guidelines on minimally invasive pancreas resection surgery (MIPR) that aim to give guidance to surgeons, hospital administrators, patients and medical societies on the outcome and direction to be taken regarding this challenging type of surgery.
