It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 37th edition of Surgery Update, an annual forum for imparting knowledge to the postgraduate students in surgery from all over India and neighbouring countries.

The Department of Surgery at Maulana Azad Medical College has been at the forefront of surgical education and innovations since long. Residents here have a distinct advantage – they are exposed to a large variety of procedures. It is our belief that a surgeon with strong basic surgical skills can face any situation in the future.

For a surgeon the operating room is akin to a temple. We are lucky in having well equipped operating rooms with all latest equipment and gadgets, such as Lasers, Plasma coagulators, harmonic and Ligasures for use by all in the department. A fully functional Urodynamic laboratory complements the Urology services provided by the department; also provide lithotripsy, endourological, and other endosurgical and laser treatments. Ours is one of the few government centres offering Bariatric surgery to the needy, and the first government institute in India having acquired accreditation by the National Board of Examinations to train candidates for the fellowship of the National Board in Minimal Access Surgery. 

It is indeed a measure of the immense popularity of the Surgery Update that the number of delegates is increasing every year. From a one day exercise in 1984, it has evolved over the years to reach its present form. Still, it is said that without change, there is no creativity or innovation, so we attempt to change the programme for the better each year. I am sure you will be enriched academically and return with a feeling of satisfaction.

On behalf of the Dean, Maulana Azad Medical College, and faculty of Department of Surgery, I once again extend a warm welcome to all of you.
