Greetings from eMISCON 2020, Kochi !


Yet again another feather in Dr. R. Padmakumar’s Cap by organising eMISCON 2020 at Kochi, in Association with South Zone Conference of SELSI on 17th & 18th July 2020, which we all were looking forward to be present as always.

This year’s event is being organised in a unique way at the Department Of General & Minimally Invasive Surgery at VPS-Lakeshore Hospital, Kochi in collaboration with Verwandeln Instatute, Kochi as a Live Operative Workshop, International Conference Of Minimally Invasive Surgery & Online CME - MISCON 2020 on 17th & 18th July 2020.

The conference is supported by Verwandeln Institute Kochi (Center for MIS training), Indian Hernia Society (IHS), Association of Surgeons Of India (Kerala Chapter), Keyhole Clinic, Kochi and Society of Endoscopic & Laparoscopic Surgeons of India (SELSI) National body. We are expecting around 500 delegates from different parts of India and overseas.

This year is unique in many ways due to COVID – 19 crisis, preventing surgeons from travelling and participating in the conference as used to happen in yesteryears. Therefore, Dr. Padmakumar has evolved a unique medium to hold the live operative workshop at different centres in the country with live Tele-Video link being made available to participants from their home comfort. This is happening for the first time ever in the country that a National Conference and Live operative workshop and Online CME will be accessible from anywhere in the country and overseas through digital technology platform.

It is a unique opportunity that during this International Conference of Minimally Invasive Surgery - MISCON 2020, there is going to be a “VIRTUAL TRADE EXHIBITION”, which can be viewed virtually and also gain advantage from the same.

Who should take advantage of this huge opportunity? – The Practicing General & Laparoscopic Surgeons, Gastro-intestinal Surgeons, Urologists, Gynecologic Laparoscopic Surgeons and Postgraduate Students in various Medical Schools in the country as well as DNB students in the hospitals all over the country.

The detailed scientific program and details about Live Operative Workshop and International Conference Cum Online CME shall be shared digitally and social media by the dynamic organising Team lead by Dr. R Padmakumar very soon.

The live operative workshop is expected to cover a large varieties of procedures ranging from basic to most advanced will be performed via Minimal Access by distinguished National and International Faculty at multiple centres spread over length and breadth of our nation.

MISCON is an Annual event, we all look forward to year after year. We are confident that eMISCON 2020 will be a huge success as always under DR. R Padmakumar’s passionate leadership and his ever energetic organising team.

I extend a warm welcome to one and all for active participation by online registration at www.miscon2020.com for accessing the proceedings of the conference and live operative workshop on various surgical techniques.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of eMISCON 2020, we extend our heartfelt invitation to you for participation and suggestions for improvement in subsequent years.

I welcome again one and all for the virtual tour of the beautiful City of Cochin, Kerala.

Dr. M.C.Misra

I am very happy to note that “MISCON 2020-SELSI South Zone Conference” is being planned for 17th and 18th July 2020 at Kochi as “E Live Conference from multiple centers and an online CME program” for the first time in these difficult times of COVID-19.

It is very important especially in these times with travel restrictions to maintain academic activities. I think Dr. Padmakumar and his team have come up with a wonderful concept of this E Live conference for the first time in India where they plan to transmit Live surgeries from multiple centers all across India for the benefit of Surgeons. There are many webinars being organized but the thrill of Live Surgery is always better and surgeons would be able to connect through these virtual platforms much better.

We would miss the hospitality and personal exchanges during these meetings but I am sure the interactions would be enriching for delegates and faculty attending this virtual conference. I wish Dr Padma Kumar and his team all success in this endeavor and I hope this will be path changing in future for the surgical conferences where we can avoid long distance travel and enjoy the surgical feast sitting at our home.

Stay home, stay safe, wash your hands regularly!!
