Ten years ago a group of enthusiastic surgeons, gastroenterologists, endoscopists and radiologists organized the first dedicated coloproctology meeting in Romania, Timisoara. The main organization principle established was multidisciplinarity and jointing basic knowledge from the guidelines with the latest data from clinical studies; coloproctology congress has, therefore, a medico-surgical profile , with participants who are active and directly involved in the diagnosis, treatment and basic research of these diseases.
In 2020, the anniversary year of the Coloproctology Congress, the meeting will take Place virtually betwin 3-5 of December , under the aegis of the Romanian Society of Coloproctology and with the support of the Romanian Society of Digestive Endoscopy, Romanian Society of Surgery, Romanian Association of Endoscopic Surgery, Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Romanian Club of Crohn`s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, Romanian Society of Neurogastroenterology. It`s a great pleasure to mention that this anniversary edition is, like the one from 2019, endorsed by the International Association of Surgeons , Gastroenterologists and Oncologists ( IASGO).
The congess themes will be approached according to the principle previous mentiones –multidisciplinary and will be dedicated to colorectal cancer, polyps and polyposis, anal and perianal pathology, Crohn`s Disease, Ulcerative Colits and functional diseases of the pelvic floor.
There will be organized Pre-symposium courses,symposia and round tables including video demonstrations with standard and new techniques. There will also be held separate sessions with medical assistants, auxiliary personnel without whom medical activity could not be possible.
I consider this event with a major educational impact and with this purpose the speakers will be opinion leaders from Romania and abroad. Oral presentations of the young specialists will be also integrated in the round table discussions.
It`s a great honour to preside over this multidisciplinary congress and I promise that, together with my colleagues from the Organizing Committee we provide an insightful and clinically useful virtual event.

This year , on 7th of May, the Romanian Society of Coloproctology will celebrate 10 years of existence!
The idea of this association is to bring together the gastroenterologists and surgeons in a common effort to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of colorectal diseases.
This is justified by the increasing incidence of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases and anorectal pathology in Romania during the last years.
The Romanian Society of Coloproctology wishes to be a scientific and professional committee with a significant role in prevention, treatment, education and research of colorectal disorders.
The National Congresses organized yearly were a great occasion for meeting and expression for all the interested ones, together with international specialists of great value for a change of knowledge and experience.
The number of participants increased each year, senior doctors but also specialists, residents, medical assistants and students being highly interested in this pathology.
The Romanian Society of Coloproctology was permanently sustained by the friend societies, mainly: Romania Society of Surgery, Romanian Society of Endoscopic Surgery, Romanian Society of Digestive Endoscopy, Romanian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and by IASGO (Internațional Association of Surgeons, Gasteroenterologists and Oncologist) and European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP).
The organizers made their best every time to assure an optimal environement and to sustain a scientific programme centered on round table discussions, video presentations, educational sessions for young doctors, fellows or specialists.
I have the great honour to invite you this year to the Xth edition, an anniversary one, of the National Congress of the Romanian Society of Coloproctology .
Join us and our esteemed faculty , virtually, on December 3-5, 2020 !
