This unique 5-day course will address standards and innovative techniques for colorectal surgery.  All pathologies will be transversally covered and we will present the best medical-surgical strategies to understand the holistic management of the disease.

Live surgery should have been more comented by the faculty explaining waht they thought to be the key points, the great pit falls and sharing their personal experience. Some did it, others no. It is useful to have a bus to take all the people to the social encounters.
