Our theme for this year's meeting is ‘Surgical Innovations’.

 

With our previous successes in mind, we aim to once again organize an interesting program to include a day of workshops, debate sessions, a half-day of live operating session and a consultant’s corners. In true traditional fashion, the conference will continue to have a full colorectal day didactic session

The 2019 DDCRS meeting aims to capitalize on the success of the London 2018 ISUCRS event and would be run at the same venue - Bush House. At the London 2018 ISUCRS event, there were 425 registrants, 107 podium presentations from guest speakers and a total of 142 poster presentations and 8 video presentations.

 

This year’s, 2019 conference, aims to be ‘Bigger & Better’ and we are aiming to have over 250 delegates. 

To make attendance to the conference easy and stress free, we will hold a number of hotel reservations at hotels located within easy walking distance to the conference venue. These may be purchased directly online together with your registration ticket.

 

So why hesitate? Join us in December 2019 in the heart of London for not only another fantastic educational meeting, a great networking opportunity and also an opportunity to enjoy London with pre-Christmas shopping or perhaps a theatrical show at the West End!
