THEME  KISACON 2013

To strive towards better patient outcome and greater satisfaction let us move beyond the argument of regional or general anesthesia and change our approach towards a more global one. Treat the patient as a whole and strive towards better patient care. Like a small child asks on every journey, “are we there yet”, we anesthesiologists on our journey towards excellence, as we create new milestones and achievements ask ourselves , are we there yet? Lets continue our journey towards perfection in the field of anesthesiology to reach greater heights and newer embankments. The 2013 edition of KISACON focuses on reinforcing our quest towards attaining perfection.

We assure you that the conference would be great opportunity to learn new techniques, share and set benchmarks, network with colleagues and peers and have lots and lots of fun.
