TATME Congress 2019

Transanal and robotic approach to rectal surgery

After introduction Barcelona in 2015 and continuance in Amsterdam in 2017 the 3rd TATME Congress will be held in St. Gallen, Switzerland, in a great venue close to Lake Constance and welcomes surgeons and nurses as well.

The last decade brought up modern technical approaches to rectal cancer surgery as well as benign diseases. On top of minimal invasive techniques transanal and robotic approaches will be in focus of the TATME congress 2019. Both are concerned to be disruptive techniques, but will have to prove their benefits. The aim is to bring these innovative techniques together and into discussion.

On Sunday 8th September we will focus in preconference workshops on diagnostic and technical update in rectal cancer surgery, as well as on topics for OR nurses. During the congress on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th with international faculty and guests we will have a close look on current indications, techniques and results, patients view, an update on function as well as registry data and ongoing studies. Furthermore small group workshops and trainings will be available during the congress at the industry exhibition.

We would like to welcome you and your team to the TATME Congress 2019 in Switzerland and enjoy the preconference, congress and social program together!
