Sounds great. Is there a parking garage at the hospital? If not, is there non metered parking within a few blocks?

Which surgeons will be there to answer questions?

Yes, there's a large parking garage (how could there not be in the middle of SF?). Unfortunately, it's not inexpensive ($3/hr). Valet parking is also available for $3/hr. There's metered parking within walking distance, but I think it's only an hour or two max.

Drs. Berven, Hu, Burch, and Deviren will be speaking about various surgical topics. Dr. Demir-Deviren will be talking about injections. And, both physical therapists and the Pilates person are doctors. No shortage of brain power!

Potentially... we have some hurdles to jump.
