Title: 50th Anniversary Celebration of Schwartz's Principles of Surgery: First Edition: A Retrospective and Futuristic View
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 24: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Description: Facts are now fallacies, dogma disproven, algorithms altered. Can the dramatic changes over the last fifty years help us foresee the possibilities and the progress in the next half century? Through this retrospective reflection on the 1st edition of Schwartz’s Principles of Surgery, the panel will review the most important advances in Surgery in the last fifty years, and panelists will be asked to speculate on the exciting advances that loom on the horizon. Fifty years from now at the ACS Annual Congress, what will our successors think and say about our current state of the art? Seymour Schwartz, MD, FACS, who is celebrating his 60th year on the faculty of the University of Rochester, will co-moderate with David Linehan, MD, FACS, his successor as Chairman of Surgery.
