The Sydney University Surgical Society (SUSS) and Paediatric Society (SUPS) have come together to present the first “Paediatric Thoracoscopic Surgical Grand Rounds”.

Dr Jonathan Karpelowsky will discuss the thoracoscopic approach to paediatric surgery, which has become an increasingly common technique for lung resection, biopsy, and management of empyema, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, oesophageal atresia, pectus deformities, vascular abnormalities and pneumothorax.

Dr Jonathan Karpelowsky is a staff specialist in the Department of Paediatric Surgery at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. He is a general surgeon, with sub-specialties in hepatobiliary and thoracic surgery.

This event will be particularly relevant to stage 1 students who will have completed their respiratory medicine block, but will be of interest to all students interested in paediatrics, surgery, or both!

Date: Tuesday, September 8, 2015
Time: 6:00 – 7:00pm
Location: Scot Skirving Lecture Theatre, Level 6, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
