Due to the epidemiological situation in Poland and worldwide and out of concern for your safety, we have decided to change the formula of the 2nd Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery. It will still be held on 15-17 October 2020, we are only changing the formula of our meeting for the Virtual Congress. We will make every effort to adjust the substantive program and discussions to the virtual possibilities so that you can participate in the event as fully as possible.
During the Congress you will be able to ask questions using the chat, and the answers will be provided by the invited experts during the discussion time. There will be an opportunity to visit the virtual exhibition of Congress Partners and participate in a virtual artistic evening.
All that in order for us to meet, exchange experiences and benefit from expert knowledge from around the world.
We would like to cordially invite you to attend,
due to the great interest in the International Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery, organized for the first time in 2018 in Lublin, the Main Board of the Association of Polish Surgeons decided to continue this initiative. On behalf of the Organizational and Scientific Committee, we invite you to participate in the second edition of the congress, which will be held on October 15-17, 2020 in Lublin.
2020 marks a particularly important date for Polish surgeons. It is the 170th anniversary of the birth and the 100th anniversary of the death of Professor Ludwik Rydygier - our compatriot, a great patriot, and also one of the most prominent Polish surgeons, co-creator of modern surgery in the country and worldwide. 140 years ago Professor Ludwik Rydygier was the first in Poland to perform a pyloric exclusion due to gastric cancer. As an excellent operator he introduced new methods of treatment of peptic ulcer disease, he was also the creator of the original method of prostatectomy. Some of the surgical techniques introduced by him (in the field of, inter alia, cardiac surgery, plastic surgery, orthopedics, urology, treatment of stomach and rectal tumors) are still used today. In 1889 Professor Ludwik Rydygier organized the first congress of Polish surgeons from three Partitions, and above all he was the initiator and co-founder of the Association of Polish Surgeons.
Paying homage to Professor Ludwik Rydygier and taking into account the fact that minimally invasive techniques apply not only to general surgery, but also to all surgical disciplines, we have decided to encourage doctors of other specialties to participate in the subsequent edition of Congresses of Minimally Invasive Surgery. Hence the idea to invite also the scientific societies representing specialists in thoracic surgery, urology, gynecology, pediatric surgery, vascular surgery, neurosurgery, as well as Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Section, Endoscopic Surgery Section and the Section of Videosurgery of the Association of Polish Surgeons to participate in the second edition.
The congress agenda includes interdisciplinary scientific sessions with the participation of eminent experts from around the world, representing all of the above surgical specializations. Several world-known pioneers in the field of minimally invasive techniques have already confirmed their participation in the second edition.
As the Organizers, we make every effort to ensure that the II International Congress of Minimally Invasive Surgery in 2020 meets your substantive expectations with the possibility of establishing professional international cooperation. Traditionally, the program also includes accompanying events (both in the hospitable city of Lublin and in the Lublin region), which will be an opportunity to meet in a friendly atmosphere and establish lasting friendships.
