Welcome to the congress of Innovations in Colorectal Surgery
We look back at a very succesfull first edition of ‘Innovations in Colorectal Surgery’. At 28-29 March 2019 the Department of Surgery of Amsterdam UMC hosted a international symposium in the Amsterdam Skillc Centre, one of the new top European skill centers.
Thank you all for the support for the course and symposium on Innovations in Colorectal Surgery on 28 and 29th March 2019 in Amsterdam
The hands-on course was fully booked with an impressive amount of 24 procedures with 36 participants and 12+2 international faculty. The procedures trained were TaTME, Laparoscopic lateral pelvic lymph node dissection, Minimal invasive trans-perineal ELAPE, pelvic excenteration and laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with D3 LN dissection.
The scientific symposium on Friday 29th was attended by over 160 participants including faculty covering a wide range of trending topics in colorectal surgery.
We have had more than excellent reviews, worldwide attention on social media and many asked for the dates of next year!
We are currently exploring the optimal date for the follow up edition of Innovations in Colorectal surgery edition 2020! A Save the Date is coming soon!
