2nd SurgEndocrine event: a global call for endocrine surgery techniques

Faculty and viewers across the world interacted with the surgeons during the procedure, and a debriefing session between chairs and faculty took place at the end of the meeting. Parathyroid gland management issues regarding to postoperative hypocalcemia and hypoparathyroidism were discussed.
