UCMed is the official partner hospital of the 13th Asia Pacific Congress of Endoscopic & Laparoscopic Surgeons of Asia (ELSA).
More than 500 surgeons from the Asia Pacific region will be participating in the congress. Five (5) simultaneous workshops on Bariatric Surgery, Colon, Upper GI, Hernia Surgery and Surgical Endoscopy will be conducted by prominent international surgeons. Live surgery demonstration by experts will also be live-streamed at UCMed on November 15, 2017.
Streaming of live surgery is made possible because UCMed is home to the first ever fully-integrated 3D Endoalpha Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Suite in Southeast Asia that integrates all surgical equipment to create the ideal OR environment for efficient & comfortable laparoscopic surgery. With 3 MIS operating theaters and 2 in the Digestive Endoscopy unit, this feature allows a 2-way full HD AV conferencing facility ideal for teaching, mentoring and collaboration with world experts.
