6th international Congress in Robotic Surgery
The SOUTH EASTERN EUROPEAN ROBOTIC SURGERY SOCIETY (SEERSS) convenes for its sixth International Congress in Athens on 1st – 3rd December 2017.
SEERSS represents the first scientific society for the South-Eastern European community of minimally invasive surgeons using robotic surgical systems. The purpose of the congress is to cover the most important current clinical indications of robotic surgery for physicians, residents, fellows, nurses and allied health professionals interested in evolution of surgical science and novel applications in clinical practice.
Our goal is to expand the network of surgeons, who share the idea of wider expansion and application of robotic surgery in clinical practice. The rapid development of technology and the application of minimal invasive surgery, in numerous fields of surgery, have resulted in spectacular improvement in the safety and precision of operations, as well as in the improvement of the quality of life of the patients.
It is a privilege for our country, that its capital Athens, will host such a major scientific forum in the field of robotic surgery, bringing together prominent surgeons from South- Eastern Europe and leading international experts from the rest of the world. All of them will come together, united by the ambition to exchange their experience, ideas and scientific achievements, in every aspect of robotic surgery.
The 6th SEERSS congress is the scientific platform for every surgeon interested in the latest technical developments and the continuous progress of surgical science and practice. The meeting’s aim is to educate the surgical community on robotic surgical techniques with the ultimate goal of improving the level of patient care. It will also feature high-quality robotic surgery by international experts with interactive moderation. The focus of the meeting will be on practical instructions on robotic surgery with live-surgery sessions, courses, and hands-on training sessions. The highly interactive format of the meeting invites fruitful discussions. A technical exhibition will be held jointly with the meeting, where manufacturers will be showcasing the latest breakthroughs.
The topics to be discussed, in the scientific program, are current state of the Robotics in Europe and internationally, future of robotic surgery, robotic programs in public and private sector, training and accreditation in robotic surgery, 3D education with robotic systems, new technologies, Upper GI diseases and bariatrics, Lower GI robotic surgery, Hepatopancreatobiliary robotic surgery, Endocrine surgery and miscellaneous, Robotics in Gynecology, Robotic SILS, Robotic prostatectomy, Robotic cystectomy and kidney surgery, Heart and thoracic surgery, Anesthesiology in robotics, Video sessions and What to expect from manufacturer in the near future.
We are looking forward to your active participation
