  • 3. Dear Colleagues: SAGES 2013 Scientific Session & Postgraduate Course On behalf of SAGES and the Program Committee, we would like to invite you to the 2013 SAGES Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD. This year’s Annual SAGES Meeting continues a long-standing tradition of innovative technology in the fields of general, gastrointestinal, endoscopic, robotic, and minimally invasive surgery. This year’s program is held in conjunction with the International Society of Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery (ISLCRS). This joint meeting highlights cutting-edge and standard of care treatments for colon and rectal pathology every day of the conference. The program for the 2013 meeting focuses on relevant clinical problems that busy surgeons encounter every day in their respective practices. The information obtained from this year’s conference may be readily adopted into daily practice. Also, the sessions are structured to provide self-assessment CME credits, which may be used toward fulfilling Part 2 of the American Board of Surgery Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Surgeons must obtain self- assessment credits for Board certification and re-certification. As with any SAGES program, the Meeting continues to evolve ahead of the curve and the conference features electronic media to help personalize the meeting for its members. A SAGES Meeting App will be available, providing access to meeting content via your handheld devices. Furthermore, e-mails and tweets during the meeting will keep attendees informed of upcoming informative and exciting events.  SAGES members are encouraged to bring the entire family as child care opportunities are available for younger children. High school students are invited to attend the Mini-Medical School and kids of all ages can experience Top Gun for Kids. The entire family is encouraged to volunteer for one of our community service events. Finally, all kids under 10 may eat free at the Gala and Sing Off when accompanied by a parent. The 2013 SAGES Annual Meeting will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center from April 17-20.   Highlights include: · Hands-on courses (Bariatric, Component Separation, POEM and Intra-lumenal Endoscopic Techniques, & Colorectal) · Didactic courses and panels co-sponsored with ASCRS, AORN, ALACE, ASMBS, AHPBA, SSAT, CAGS & JSES · Numerous panels, symposia, video & scientific sessions · World Class Faculty · ABS MOC compliant sessions · Training & certificate opportunity for FLS and FES · Top Gun and Top Gun for Kids · Learning Center with new simulators & simulation scenarios · SAGES Mini Medical School for high school students · Volunteerism & a newly released documentary on Dr. George Berci · An Exhibit Hall that showcases the latest equipment & instruments · Fabulous social events along the Baltimore Harbor  If you go to just one surgical meeting in 2013, this is the one!

Daniel Smith, MD; Session Co-Chair: Bernard Dallemagne, MD SESSION DESCRIPTION This session will cover complex topics in foregut surgery increasingly encountered by surgeons caring for patient with foregut conditions.  World experts will discuss presentation, diagnosis and management strategies for these conditions that go well beyond basic GERD and hiatal hernia. This session’s objectives are a classical application of educational principles to adult learning. The problem is the increasing complexity in managing foregut disease as new therapies become available and the diseases themselves are increasingly advanced presentations.  Participants will learn the varied presentations of these more complex conditions and management strategies that go beyond managing basic foregut conditions.  On returning to their practice, they will be equipped to change how they operate by applying this knowledge in caring for foregut patients. This improved understanding will allow for better patient selection and use of advanced interventions. SESSION OBJECTIVES At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: • Understand and describe complex conditions and circumstances effecting surgical foregut diseases • Recognize some of the innovations and new technologies used in managing foregut disease • Be aware of the impact that advanced presentations of foregut disease can have on selecting management strategies for these patients • Approach complex foregut conditions with greater confidence SESSION OUTLINE Time Presentation Title Faculty Name 7:30am Introduction C.
