MASICON the annual conference every surgeon in Maharashtra waits for ! It was a well organised meeting at Pune with over 1000 surgeons participating. Was privileged to conduct a panel on ‘Improving outcomes in Colorectal cancer surgery’ . Kudos to Dr Kolte and Pune Surgical Society and Dr Samir Rege for the meeting. Thank you for the opportunity! Also was thrilled to meet one of my favourite poets Sandeep Khare!
