Athens is selected to be the host city of the biennial Congress of the European Society of Endocrine Surgeons.
It is beyond any doubt that endocrine surgery has been continuously evolving alongside other specialties.
It is therefore the duty and responsibility of the Society to keep a close eye on developments, to inform colleagues about them, and in particular to emphasize in practices, protocols and techniques that increase the safety of surgeries for endocrine diseases. An even greater goal for the Society is to attract new colleagues who deal with endocrine surgery and initiate them into good surgical practices with an ultimate goal of offering patients the ideal surgery with the lowest possible complication rate.
The above-mentioned data, we believe, will be the scientific backbone of our conference with the aim of homogenizing surgery for the operations of endocrine diseases across Europe and thus the consolidation of a common “communication language” among European Surgeons.
