Dear Colleague

It is my pleasure to invite you to the upcoming Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS), February 25 - 28 2015 at the Red Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada — our 15th annual gathering of the thought leaders and pioneers in minimally invasive surgery. This year's symposium will focus on hernia, colon, foregut and metabolic/bariatric surgery. 

MISS is known for a casual, collegial atmosphere that fosters open discussion and debate. The spirited interaction between the experts on our podium and the surgeons in our audience creates an superior peer-to-peer learning experience for surgeons of every level. 

Our venue in Las Vegas. Take advantage of our discount room rate to enjoy fine dining and exciting entertainment while at MISS. 

We offer flexible registration options and early bird rates that make MISS a very affordable as well as an enjoyable educational experience. I hope to see you and your colleagues at the 2015 MISS!
