Welcome to the 14th European Colorectal Congress of St.Gallen

Dear Friends of the ECC St.Gallen, dear Colleagues,

We proudly introduce the 14th European Colorectal Congress of St.Gallen. In a concentrated programme over 3 days, following key themes will be covered:

Colorectal cancer, including liver metastasis; proctology and pelvic floor: from time-tested wisdoms to innovative approaches; new technologies and updated management strategies in complex situations, and more contemporary topics like the evolving role of the microbiome.
A dedicated session on IBD supported by the European Crohn and Colitis Organisation rounds up the programme. Other highlights are the Lars Pahlman Lecture and the Lecture by the President of the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery.
Also, a dedicated Masterclass in Colorectal Surgery will be taught ahead of the Congress.

Overall, about 40 state-of-the art Lectures by leading international Experts will be given during the St.Gallen Colorectal Week.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in St.Gallen in December!
