In addition to Dr. Edwards’ lecture, the Surgical Symposium will feature Dr. Tiffany Wright, an assistant professor of surgery in the pediatric surgery division of the University of Louisville, and Dr. Anthony Bottiggi, assistant professor of surgery in the UK division of General Surgery.

Third year UK general surgery residents will also provide case presentations as part of the symposium.
