About congress

Dear Colleagues, dear friends,

It is my great honor and privilege to invite you to the First Congress of Serbian Association of Endoscopic Surgery with international participation, which will take place October 12-14th in Belgrade, under the auspices of European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES).

Minimally invasive surgery, the most important revolution in surgery since endotracheal intubation in the early 20th century, has made a difference in the lives of millions of patients worldwide and continues to expand its scope. Despite facing all the challenges like many Central and Eastern European countries during the transitional period, minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery in Serbia continued to develop during the past decades. Serbian Association of Endoscopic Surgery evolved through the need for improvement of communication and exchange of surgeon’s experience, better training and education and boosting connections with the surgeons and the other professional associations Europe- and worldwide.

The theme of our First Congress is “Minimally invasive surgery in Serbia today”. We will do our very best to cover all the most important topics through scientific and poster sessions, training symposia and hands-on courses. This will incorporate most of the surgical specialties dealing with endoscopic surgery, including gynecology, urology, thoracic and pediatric minimally invasive surgery. This will also be the great opportunity to meet and exchange experience with our distinguished guest lecturers, experts in minimally invasive surgery, particularly for younger surgeons and residents. Our congress will also include Symposium for nurses specialized in the field of minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery. Organizing committee will also try to provide warm and rich social program, for which the Belgrade is very well known.

Dear colleagues, we would love to see you here in Belgrade in October and we would like encourage you to send abstracts, so we can share our work together.

Prof. Dr Slavko Matić,

President of the Organizing committee
