This Masterclass is intended for surgeons who want to discover best practices in Colorectal Surgery and learn the strategic rationale behind the technique.

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.
