The Department of Surgical Disciplines is organizing the “X AIIMS Surgical Week” International Conference, CME cum Live Workshop (ENDOSURG 2016) from 04th to 06th March 2016 at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. “ENDOSURG” is an annual event which provides opportunity to young surgeons to update their knowledge and interact with the wizards in the field of surgery coming from India and abroad.

This year's conference is coinciding with the Diamond Jubilee year (2015-2016) of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. We extend a warm invitation to all of you to participate in the conference and be a part of AIIMS Diamond Jubilee Celebration! This year we are also organising the 8th National Conference of Indian Hernia Society and Mid-Term Conference of Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgeons of India.

After the grand success of previous year’s PG CMEs this year also we are organizing a Pre-conference CME especially for the post graduates and young Surgeons.

The theme of this year's conference is “Surgical Complications– What, When and How.” Complication are a part and parcel of surgery. The importance lies i not only in preventing them in the first place but to recognize them if they occur in a timely manner and take appropiate action to prevent patient mortality as well as legal issues. During the conference the experts will discuss this issue to make a consensus about preventing, early recognition and treatment of surgical complications.

The main attraction of the conference will be workshops with live demonstrations of surgeries by the faculty who are regarded as authority in their field. They will perform simple to complex surgeries with an opportunity to directly interact with them through surgery.

Live tele-video conferencing which is a unique feature of this conference will enthrallthe audience by providing surgical expertise from best centres in the world to our doorstep, so that we can directly visualize the surgical procedures and simultaneously interact with them.

Delhi is a beautiful city with world class infrastructure, a political hub that has places of historical importance. The pleasant weather in the month of March and mouth watering delicacies makes Delhi an ideal place to visit. On behalf of Organizing Committee, we invite you to participate in large numbers to make this conference a grand success.

See you in March 2016
