Type :  Oncosurg 2020
Venue : Webinar, Mumbai

Due to the pandemic this time Tata Memorial Centre had to switch to online mode for conducting ” ONCOSURG”. ONCOSURG has gained a huge reputation in the country as single most comprehensive live surgical oncology workshop. Skilled surgeons who have mastered the craft and surgeons who have pioneered surgical techniques, from Tata and beyond, demonstrate complex oncological surgeries in ONCOSURG.

However , this time only prerecorded and edited videos were shown. Neverthless, the discussion was still exciting and enriching just like it always was.

I was happy to be on the panel to discuss the finer points of colorectal cancer surgeries.
