To Friends and Colleagues,

Please save the date and join us for the next Michael E DeBakey International Surgical Society meeting to be held at the Gaylord Texan August 23-25, 2018.  We will celebrate the Living Legacy of Dr. DeBakey and his contributions across a multitude of surgical specialties and education.  We will have an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of surgical masters as well as young investigators and residents.  The meeting will offer an opportunity to exchange scholarly ideas and ample time to visit with old friends.  We are excited to share a flavor of the Old West and some of the rich Texas heritage.  Mark your calendars now!!!!!  More program information and online registration will be following.
