In conjunction with the 32nd Panhellenic Congress of Paediatric Surgery with International Participation, a Clinical Colorectal Course and Workshop for Paediatric Surgeons will be held, with interest in some of the main topics of the Congress, i.e., Congenital Anorectal Malformations and Hirschsprung’s Disease. A team of distinguished surgeons led by Prof. Marc Levitt (OH, USA) will perform operations on selected patients, and those who join will have the opportunity to meet them and discuss in real-time practical issues on surgical treatment.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, October 3 (morning+afternoon) and Friday, October 4, 2019 (morning) in the operating theaters of “Panagiotis & Aglaia Kyriakou” Children’s Hospital. A real-time interactive communication system will connect the OR with the hospital’s amphitheater, where the participants of the workshop will attend the operations. If you join both the Workshop and the Congress, there will be a discount, especially if you do an early registration (deadline: 31/08/2019). For Workshop fees click HERE.
