Minimally invasive surgery is a revolution driven by technology. The introduction of miniaturised video cameras and thin and long surgical instruments changed the way we treat our patients and has changed surgery dramatically. Laparoscopic surgeons were the first to learn to use sophisticated technology in the general surgery O.R., and many of them help design the tools that we use. The EAES is determined to lead and shape the future of minimally invasive surgery, including the technologies we use in the operating room and outside it. One of the important activities to achieve that is to maintain a platform that enables open communication with our partners in shaping the future – engineers, designers, and the industry.

Submit NOW your abstract for the Technology Symposium during the EAES congress in Maastricht, The Netherlands, 11 June 2024. All abstracts must be submitted online via the EAES abstract submission page.
