It is beyond any doubt that endocrine surgery has been continuously evolving alongside other specialties.
It is therefore the duty and responsibility of our 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.
The Hellenic Society of Endocrine Surgeons, having developed close scientific links with the Hellenic Society of Endocrinology, also invites endocrinologists to contribute to the realization of the objectives of the conference within the framework of the multidisciplinary approach of endocrine diseases.
We call on you and invite you to Athens, Greece, the home of Hippocrates, in May of 2020, so we can achieve the aforementioned goals together.
