Welcome to the congress of Innovations in Colorectal Surgery
Innovations in Colorectal Surgery 2020, a high-end colorectal surgical dedicated congress and hands on cadaver course, will surpass the success of the 2019 edition. We aim to bring global key opinion leaders in various hot topics in colorectal surgery together in the Amsterdam Skills Centre to present and forecast innovations that colorectal surgeons need to improve patient care.
The previous edition consisted of more than 15 international renowned speakers and a twelve station hands on cadaver course in the brand new Amsterdam Skills Centre. This year we will extend the scientific program to two days April 9 (full) and 10th (morning). The hands-on course (limited to 36 participants) will be on Wednesday April 8th.
Amsterdam is a highly accessible city with Schiphol airport in 30 min of the congress venue and the city center offers a variety of opportunities to informally discuss further research and collaboration.
