      Welcome to the March 2023 issue of Surgery, containing articles related to the presentations from the 79th annual meeting of the Central Surgical Association. This meeting was held at the beautiful Saint Kate Arts Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, WI in June 2022. In this issue there are 43 peer-reviewed publications reflecting great research from our members and their collaborators. Our 79th president, Dr Tim Pritts, details his thoughts on grit in surgery and kicks off this issue in his presidential address. The winner of our Best Presentation by a New Member was Greg Wilson from the University of Cincinnati, whose presentation on the use of CT texture analysis to predict endocrine function after total pancreatectomy and islet cell autotransplantation leads off the scientific session presentations. The best part about the Central Surgical Association annual meeting and this issue is the variety, relevance, and novelty of the topics presented. We run the gamut from an examination of the use of Botox to facilitate complex abdominal wall reconstruction to a geospatial analysis of opioid overdoses to an analysis of robotic surgical costs in outpatient inguinal hernia repair. It is a great surgical meeting and a fantastic issue of Surgery. We hope you enjoy these articles from our annual meeting and look forward to seeing anyone who can join us for our next annual meeting in June 2023 in Cleveland, OH.
