Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleague,
As President of the Southern Thoracic
Surgical Association, it is my great
pleasure to extend this invitation to you
to attend the STSA 60th Annual Meeting,
October 30 – November 2, 2013, at the
Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at
Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ.
Please take a few minutes to review the educational sessions
listed in this Advance Program. You will note the names of many
top experts in the field. Again this year, we have an excellent
Post Graduate Program that will include case presentations and
expert panels, a pro/con debate, and specialty-specific breakout
sessions. The Program Committee carefully considered the
comments and suggestions received from last year’s attendees
when creating the 2013 Program. The Scientific Sessions will again
feature cardiac, thoracic, congenital, and transplant breakout
sessions as well as special History and Coding presentations. All
sessions have been scheduled to allow plenty of opportunities
for thoughtful discussion. There will also be time for attendees to
enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship that is such a big part of the
STSA Annual Meeting experience.
In addition to the educational sessions, I encourage you to bring
your family and enjoy the many activities offered at the resort,
conveniently located just 25 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor
International Airport. The Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort &
Spa is the perfect venue for an STSA meeting, featuring two
and half acres of water playground, a beautiful golf course, and
breathtaking mountain views. For those who bring children, there’s
Club Hyatt and affordable baby-sitting options available. STSA
meeting attendees receive reduced room rates and waived resort
fees, allowing you and your family free access to bike rentals,
in-room wifi, and a 24-hour fitness center. Be sure to register
in advance for the always-popular golf tournament on Saturday
afternoon, and please encourage your guests to participate in the
other activities taking place during the meeting.
Finally, I urge everyone to attend the grand finale of the Annual
Meeting—the Awards Dinner & Dance on Saturday evening. The
Saturday dinner will be family-oriented this year. Children are
invited to come and eat with their parents. Tuxedos for men
and formal gowns for women are still encouraged, keeping with
tradition, but not necessary. The dress code is optional and varied
and can range from formal to business casual (tuxedo, jacket
and tie, or just a sports coat for men and from evening gowns to
cocktail dresses and a blouse with slacks or a skirt for women).
Since the meeting falls on Halloween this year costumes may also
be worn by both children and parents alike. The whole family can
dress up in a theme if desired, or just the kids. Children can also
wear their costumes on Halloween (Thursday during the Annual
Meeting) to trick-or-treat at the booths in the Exhibit Hall at a
designated time.
I am confident that you and your family will enjoy the Annual
Meeting experience, and I hope you will start making plans now to
attend. I look forward to spending time with you and our colleagues
as we enjoy the fellowship and education of the STSA. See you this
fall in Scottsdale!

Robert J. Cerfolio, MD
STSA President
