It is a great honour and pleasure for me to invite you to the XVIth International Congress of Colorectal Surgery which will be held between 03 – 06 October 2019, in Varna, Bulgaria.
During this exciting congress, surgeons from around the world will share their expertise to advance the interdisciplinary fields of coloproctology and abdominal surgery.
Our ambition as a regular organizer of a series of 15 international coloproctological meetings is to pay special attention to innovations in translational and personalized medicine, laparoscopic and robotic colorectal surgery. New millennium challenges of wide-spectrum novelties in the modern diagnosis, management and prevention of the diseases of the colon, rectum and anus are of rising socio-medical importance worldwide.
This is a unique opportunity to meet our colleagues from different parts of the globe, establish new collaborations, make new friends and comprehensively discuss different hot topics in the clinical practice of surgery.
Also, I hope you will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful culture of Bulgaria, its nature, cuisine and hospitality.
