We Only Have One DDCRS

 
WELCOME

Dear Colleagues,

In spite of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak, we are proud to announce that we will be holding our 10th Dilemmas & Debates in Colorectal Surgery Conference (DDCRS) from 12-14th January 2023 as a physical event at Bush House, King's College London, WC2R 2LS.

Our good news is that we plan to hold a traditional three-day conference on the occasion of the 10th anniversary, with lectures, discussions, and workshops addressing challenging situations, controversies, and problems in colorectal surgery, as well as other topics that will likely be of interest to professionals from various disciplines. The meeting will take place in collaboration with The International Society of University Colon & Rectal Surgeons, (ISUCRS) The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain & Ireland (ACPGBI), and The Italian Society of Colorectal Surgeons (SICCR). On the agenda will be sessions titled 'How I Do It/Live Surgery,' the traditional debate session, 'Six of the Best' podium presentations, and a consultant corner featuring 'The Dream MDT' discussing challenging cases such as inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer patients.

A number of workshops will be held on Thursday 12th Januaryr which will be of great benefit to surgical trainees and young colorectal specialists. These workshops include: 1. Pelvic Floor Assessment - 3D US & HRM anophysiology, 2. Workshop on complex abdominal wall reconstruction, 3. Laparoscopic dry-lab skills training, and 4. Haemorrhoid & Fistula workshop.

Why hesitate? Come and join us in December 2022 in the heart of London for not only an educational meeting but also a fantastic networking event as well as time to explore the sights of London while you attend a theatrical performance in the West End.

Yours sincerely

 

Mr Joseph W Nunoo-Mensah, Professor Narimantas E. Samalavicius, Mr Pasquale Giordano, Mr Piero Nastro
