SMISS Annual Forum Update

Due to the numerous challenges associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the SMISS Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the live 2020 SMISS Annual Forum. The Forum will instead be held as a virtual meeting, thus enabling SMISS to continue to deliver outstanding MIS education to surgeons worldwide. Read the full message from Dr. Juan Uribe, President of SMISS.
