Welcome to the 16th European Colorectal Congress of St.Gallen




Dear Colleagues,

Amidst the pandemic which has taken control over our life since more than a year we want to share with you our hopes for a brighter time.

In 2021, we plan to organize a live congress as we believe in a better future – the 15th European Colorectal Congress should be held in St. Gallen again.

As always we will start with a Masterclass in Colorectal Surgery on Sunday, November 28, followed by 3 days of plenary congress for another St. Gallen Colorectal Surgery Week. A Course in Proctology and Hernia Surgery will be given on Thursday, December 2.

More than 40 scientific lectures given by the best international speakers will cover most hot topics in Colorectal Surgery.

Expect the highest Swiss quality in professional education and practical knowledge for every clinical need.

See you next Winter in St. Gallen.
