Turkish Society of Colon and Rectum Surgery has been successfully carrying out its studies in educational, scientific and social fields since its establishment in 1990. I am proud to announce that we will organize the “II. INTERNATIONAL COLORECTAL SURGERY CONGRESS, XIX. NATIONAL COLON AND RECTAL SURGERY CONGRESS and XII. NATIONAL, I. INTERNATIONAL COLORECTAL SURGERY NURSING CONGRESS” on May 16-20, 2023 at Susesi Convention Center in Antalya.
I’m honored that our congress, held every 2 years by the Turkish Society of Colon and Rectum Surgery, will be held in person at its traditional timetable of May. Moreover, we will have the opportunity to feast on the scientific information of our congress along with the excitement of the “Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day” all together.
Esteemed surgeons from all around the world, experts in their surgical and scientific fields, will be hosted at our congress and will share their experiences with us. Considering the international nature of our congress and the qualified scientific program, we expect many participants from abroad.
In addition to the most up-to-date approaches in colorectal cancer surgery and new technological developments in surgery, we are preparing a scientific program that covers the proctological diseases that we undertake the most in our daily practice. The scientific program, including precongress workshops, conferences, surgical video presentations, tumor councils, and interactive sessions will be held in two separate halls simultaneously. We will also have the opportunity to meet our young colleagues and surgeons during breakfast sessions to discuss problems face-to-face and find solutions.
Congresses are a unique opportunity to both share our knowledge and update it. As such, I request my young colleagues to prepare and send their scientific studies as soon as possible. You will have the opportunity to give selected oral and video presentations in the main halls and selected poster presentations in the poster area. In this congress, colorectal and proctological surgery videos will be evaluated separately, and the best oral, video, and poster presentation awards will be distributed.
We have all longed to see each other since the beginning of the pandemic, and congresses offer the best chance to socialize with our professors and friends. We’ll be all together during the dinners and the social programs that will be held afterwards in the congress hotel. On Friday, May 19, we will all enjoy a surprise concert at the gala and celebrate our national day.
Our biggest supporters and secret heroes of surgery with whom we work shoulder to shoulder, my nurse friends, will be with us during the 12th “CONGRESS on COLORECTAL SURGERY NURSING”. The scientific value of our congress will be increased with their contributions.
My dear colleagues and nurse friends, I am offering you my love and respect with the anticipation of meeting you on May 16-20, 2023. I hope that love, health and science will replace the wars, economic crisis and pandemic
