Rome is one of a kind in having two sovereign elements found altogether inside its city restricts, the Holy See, spoke to by the Vatican City State, and the regionally littler Sovereign Military Order of Malta. The Vatican is an enclave of the Italian capital city and a sovereign ownership of the Holy See which is the Diocese of Rome and the incomparable legislature of the Roman Catholic Church. Rome hence has outside consulates to the Italian government, to the Holy See, to the Order of Malta and to certain universal associations.

Session4: Breast Surgery
Generally augmentation, reduction and reconstruction are the three main categories of Breast Surgery. Breast augmentation is performed to enhance the size, appearance and contour of a woman's breasts.it is performed with implants that can be placed over or under the pectoralis chest muscle. In Breast reduction, procedure surgeons remove excess skin, fat and glandular tissue from Large, heavy, pendulous breasts. In the Reconstruction process, the desired appearance, contour and volume of the breast can be recreated with implants or with a woman's own tissue.

Session5: Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgery is mainly affecting the diseases of arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels also including the intracranial and coronary arteries. Excluding heart and brain, surgeons treat all the part of the vascular system. They utilise minimally invasive techniques in the field of endovascular surgery. Endovascular surgery has shown many short term advantages compared to open surgery.

Session6: Endocrine Surgery
Endocrine surgery is mainly affected diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. Minimally invasive techniques are used for parathyroid and thyroid surgery. In thyroidectomy surgical procedure is used to remove all part of the thyroid gland. Hyperparathyroidism is treated when blood levels of calcium and parathyroid hormone are too high. In Pancreatoduodenectomy procedure the pancreas, the gallbladder, nearby lymph nodes, small intestine, bile duct and part of the stomach is removed it depends upon the condition from the patient.

Hernia surgical procedure can help return abdominal tissue back to where they are supposed to be. Anorectal Surgery procedure helps treat rectal issues like hemorrhoids.
Small intestine
Gallbladder Removal
Reconstructive surgery covers a wide variety of procedures that are performed to help repair damaged tissue. Causes of tissue damage can range from birth defects or traumatic injuries to severe burns or disease, repair and reshape bodily structures affected by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma/injuries, infections, tumours and disease.

Market Analysis:
The quantity of hip implant surgeries, major peritoneal medical procedures, thoracic medical procedures, and ENT medical procedures alongside the medical procedures for focal sensory system (CNS), in Europe were esteemed at 35,860 thousand techniques in 2016 and is anticipated to achieve 41,818 thousand methods by 2023. The examination incorporates number of hip embeds and major peritoneal, thoracic, CNS, and ENT medical procedures performed in Europe. Thoracic medical procedures allude to careful treatment of various chest organs. Basic thoracic techniques incorporate video-helped thoracoscopic medical procedure (VATS), robot-helped thoracic surgery, segmentectomy, lobectomy, bilobectomy, pneumonectomy, thoracotomy, decortication, tube thoracostomy, pericardial window, tracheostomy, and cardiothoracic medical procedures. CNS medical procedure incorporates medical procedure of the mind, spinal string, or of the tissue adjacent.
The global surgical procedures volume market is categorized by the presence of a number of enterprises, competing to achieve a powerful market position and revenue. The industry is projected to showcase incredible growth and revenue potential, on account of the rising technological advances in healthcare, disposable incomes, and demand of minimum suffering during medical treatments, finds Transparency Market Research. The vendors such as Allergan PLC, Cutera Inc, Lumenis Ltd and Cynosure Inc. currently hold string position in the market. These companies are likely to emphasis on expanding their footprint through networking with healthcare organizations, and invest in the research and development of medical technology. It predicts that the worldwide market will reach a volume of approximately 2.2 bn procedures by 2023, the end of the forecast period. It stood at about 1.3 bn in 2014 and is expected to exhibit a steady CAGR throughout the forecast duration, i.e. 2015 to 2023. The section of gynecological surgical procedures is predicted to grasp a dominant market share by volume, on account of better and more precise prognosis and treatment of disorders and the surging in the spending capacity of individuals on better healthcare. Surgical techniques, by volume reflect a plethora of procedures, for instance, urology, dental, ophthalmic, gynecology, neurosurgery, orthopedic, and cardiovascular, which could be additionally arranged into various classifications. The eventual fate of surgical strategies lies in the headway of technological innovations in the medical field, with respect to minimum invasive methods and application of autonomy in surgical medicines. Directly exploited for gynecological methodology and gall bladder expulsion, single-entry point laparoscopic surgery is an exceptionally progressed insignificantly intrusive surgery.
