Ethicon’s first UK & Ireland Colorectal Symposium gets underway on November 25 with 20 internationally-renowned speakers and more than 50 guests gathering at a conference centre close to Stansted Airport for two days of presentations and discussions surrounding the colorectal specialty. 

The event is chaired by Prof Tan Tan Arulampalam and Prof Tim Rockall, with guest speakers from around the world including Prof Pieter Tanis from Amsterdam, Prof Luigi Boni from Milan and Raphaela O’Day from Florida. 

The highly interactive forum is focused on the evolution of healthcare within the Colorectal specialty via keynote presentations, debates and three scientific committees in Colorectal Surgery: Clinical Advancements, Digital Innovations and Optimisation of the Colorectal Patient Pathway. 

Talks across the two days include “The role of Human Factors in Colorectal Surgery”, Virtual Surgery”, “FIT for Symptomatic Patients”, as well as a workshop led by Bowel Cancer UK.
