We look forward to welcoming you to the Endocrine Surgery section of the 2019 RACS ASC in Bangkok Thailand – organized from New Zealand! The overall tagline for the meeting is, “The Complete Surgeon: Backing the Future” and as a whole the ASC will also focus on generalism in an era of increasing sub-specialization.

The invited speakers this year are well known and highly regarded in the Endocrine Surgery World, Professor Sally Carty from Pittsburgh, USA, former president of the AAES and Professor Deepak Abraham from Vellore, India who will be joined by our DCAS visitor Dr Larwence “Drew” Shirley – we’re looking forward to their excellent and wide-ranging contributions. Other highlights are sure to include Dr Christine Lai and Professor Jonathan Serpell debating the use of the nerve monitor in thyroid surgery and a session entitled “Controversies and the Future”. These sessions will be supported by a wide range of speakers from across Australia and New Zealand discussing current issues in Thyroid, Parathyroid and Adrenal disease as well as some “Lessons from the Learning Curves” of notable Australasian surgeons. Don’t forget the Masterclass where our panel of experts will provide insight on "Intraperative Challenges in Endocrine Surgery: dealing with the unexpected”. To add to this we are looking forward to the always high-quality original research contributions from the ANZES members and further afield.

 

Complementing the scientific program is the section dinner. We will be joining forces with the Breast Surgery section for this event to be held in the beautiful surroundings of the Glass House in Nai Lert Park – get your tickets before they sell out!

 

In addition to the Endocrine Surgery program a stimulating quartet of plenary sessions will explore Generalism, Global Health, Diversity and Future Horizons in the modern practice of surgery.

 

Hope to see you all in Bangkok in May.

Thursday, August 16, 2012
HISTORICAL NOTE JAMES BERRY AND HIS THYROID CLINIC Berry’s Ligament is certainly the most well known eponymous anatomical structure of relevance to thyroid surgery, tethering the thyroid gland to the trachea and lying, as it does, at the crucial point where the recurrent laryngeal nerve is most likely to be injured.

He was a general surgeon with a particular interest in the thyroid gland, and it was his ambition to polarize the activities of those general surgeons interested in the endocrine system into a special group within the Société Internationale de Chirurgie (SIC). In 1978, Peter Heimann wrote to some of his frien ..Read More

September 2009 Newsletter: A Tale of Two Celts

Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Immunogenic thyrotoxicosis is commonly referred to as Graves’ disease after the Irish physician Robert Graves. That however is a case of mistaken eponymous attribution to the wrong Celt, and the disorder should really be called Parry’s disease after the Welsh physician, Caleb Parry, who was the first to describe the clinical features. Robert Graves was born in Dublin in 1797, the son  ..Read More
