SOME of the county's highly talented surgeons are to put their skills on national display when they swap their scalpels for satellites.

Teams from three of hospitals are sharing their skills this week with over 600 surgeons from across the country at a national conference led by Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust.

Satellite technology is being used to beam operations taking place at Darent Valley, Maidstone and Benenden hospitals live to the surgeons at a three-day conference at Darent Valley Hospital and at the River Centre, Tonbridge.

Mike Parker, President of the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, said: "Kent has a wealth of highly skilled surgeons and it is a great honour to be able to share our skills in laparoscopic surgery with our colleagues throughout the country and internationally.

"This event is also a signal to patients throughout Kent. We are letting them know that as a county we are providing a high quality of care that is comparable to or better than anything the country has to offer.
