constant development of technology and imaging techniques, shift in standards of surgical procedures, increased use of ERAS protocols, robotization, attempts to minimize perioperative trauma, mandatory application of EBM principles, increasing quality of treatment and patient safety - are all main issues affecting the development of modern surgery at the end of the second decade of the XXI century.
At the same time, we are in the process of summarizing the first 30 years of implementing minimally invasive techniques in surgery. It is also a great time to analyze the level of expertise of minimally invasive surgery in Poland with respect to world trends. The First Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery in Lublin, taking place from September 27th-29th, 2018 will be an opportunity to review and exchange opinions between Polish surgeons and prominent experts from all around the globe.
To meet the expectations of the society of Minimally Invasive Surgeons in Poland, we have adopted the idea of a joint meeting of members of the Videosurgery Section, Section of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and Section of Endoscopic Surgery of the Polish Association of Surgeons. On behalf of Prof. Marek Jackowski, Prof. Maciej Michalik, Dr. Jacek Sobocki and us, we would like to invite you and all the members of the Polish Association of Surgeons, as well as doctors of other surgical specialties to participate in the First Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery, organized by the Polish Association of Surgeons.
At the congress, during the eight plenary sessions, video sessions, sponsored sessions, workshops and training sessions for in-training residents, we will have the opportunity get acquainted with the latest developments in science and to exchange our opinions about problematic clinical issues in minimally invasive surgery. We will be receiving both Polish and foreign experts. The Center for the Meeting of Cultures, a building that emanates with the architectural trends of the 21st century seemed to be the perfect venue.
Lublin will also be the perfect meeting place for the 3rd Polish Ordinaries and General Clinic Surgery Managers Conference, which will take place just before the Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery on September 27th, 2018 (www.forumordynatorow.pl).
We hope that both the level of expertise of the earlier mentioned events, as well as your stay in Lublin will meet your expectations, result in unforgettable memories, deepen the bonds of friendship and give you an opportunity to experience the multicultural character of Lublin and the picturesque Roztocze and Lubelskie regions.
