Trauma, Critical Care & Acute Surgery 2023

Medical Disaster Response 2023

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Mattox Vegas TCCACS has become the best attended such course in the world, being oversubscribed the last 15 years.  In 2020, the COVID pandemic ultimately caused us to cancel, and in 2021, we were the first large “live and in person” conference to meet successfully and safely.  Nevada COVID guidelines limited our audience to 500 attendees, all eagerly seeking to learn and renew acquaintances with colleagues.  We again sold out in 2022 to our socially distanced limited attendance of 800.  We now look forward to 2023 and are set to resume record breaking meetings!  Attendance, as in the past, is limited to 1200, with, historically, over 80% being physicians.  Our faculty are physicians in active practice who continue “in the trenches” day after day, night after night, dealing with the most complex surgical challenges.   Each year, new “rising stars” join seasoned expert faculty.  As you visit the Scientific Program section of our web site, you will be impressed that such a stellar faculty has been assembled and how so much practical surgical information has been incorporated into two and one-half days.  Past attendees have aptly described the conference content as an, “Incredible journey in surgical knowledge, with “tour guides” whose expertise and personalities make every excursion a uniquely exceptional experience,” “Amazingly wonderful, fast paced experience – like drinking water from a fire hose; it blew me away!” No other course like this in the world; can’t wait to return next year.”

As we enter our 56th record-breaking year, it is appropriate that the continued focus be TRAUMA, CRITICAL CARE, & ACUTE CARE SURGERY.  For every community, there continues to be a need for surgical and medical teams to evaluate and treat the sickest of the sick and the severely injured.  With many graduates going into practices based primarily in minimally invasive surgical subspecialties, it is appropriate that this course take a leadership role in providing a continuing education venue for the complex operative and critical care surgical challenges, with major trauma continuing to be the epitome of such challenges.

We are also excited to continue the additional  option for learning – MATTOX VEGAS TCCACS ON DEMAND 2023 for those who are unable to attend the in-person course in Las Vegas.  This is  positive modification of the virtual meeting, which will allow the attendee to attend the conference, when convenient, for up to 6 months after the conference occurs in Las Vegas.  We consider this an excellent option and way to get the important lessons learned from TCCACS 2023 to an even larger audience.  Information on registration and obtaining CME for Vegas On Demand 2023 will be posted in the On-Demand section of the web site soon.
