Madrid, November 28, 2013. Improving the training of medical residents of 4th and 5th year from different Spanish university hospitals in the area of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery has been the primary objective of the new edition of the Course of Surgery Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic recently held in HM University Sanchinarro (HMS), the only Spanish private hospital that develops this kind of post-graduate teaching in this area of expertise.
To achieve this objective most of the training received by those attending this course surgeons -sponsored by the Spanish Association of Surgeons and HMS directed by Drs Vicente Emilio and Yolanda Quijano, responsible for the Department of General and Digestive Surgery of this hospital and professors of the Faculty of Medicine at the University San Pablo CEU has focused, both in theory and in practice, in the hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery itself.
Specifically, the theoretical part involved the incorporation of doctors attending the course to all educational activities are carried out daily in the HMS Digestive and General Surgery, often in collaboration with other hospital services such as Clinical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, Pathology, Gastroenterology, etc.
On the practical side, it has planned a varied program with numerous surgical procedures performed simultaneously on four different operating rooms, performing most of them on tumors.

"From our point of view, we must convey our great satisfaction for having integrated into an official teaching that enriches continuously develop our service with numerous domestic and foreign visitors who come annually rotating and to consolidate the process of formation" they add.
And the surgical planning performed has allowed medical residents from attending, and sometimes actively participate in unusual surgical procedures. Thus, experts say, "they have done pancreatic resections associated with arterial and venous resection, pancreatic resections with robotic support, liver resection and open surgery with robotic support, ablative radiofrequency performed laparoscopically, etc" in all HMS which occupies a "special place in the national and international surgical environment." In short, an attractive offer for surgical training specialists, given the marked innovative character of all procedures performed.
The interest of both HMS and its Department of General and Digestive Surgery has always been to open its doors to all professionals interested in learning about their organizational model and internal operations.

Providing technical and future challenges
As explained Quijano Vincent and the doctors, pathology hepato-biliary-pancreatic represents one of the most complex in our specialty, but fortunately, "the incorporation of the techniques shown in the course, especially those made with robotic support allows making radical complex technical procedures with great precision, a significantly minimizing the harmful consequences associated with these techniques.
As for the surgical challenges in this field, will be associated with the currently available technology and is expected to develop in the coming years, continue to experts clarifying that "this factor associated with the possibility of gaining experience for the attention of a high number of patients going to define the potential of the group.
