Dear Friends,

Each and every one of us had undesired events happen in our careers. We can either ignore them or share our experience with others. By choosing the latter attitude we can help less experienced surgeons avoid complications and improve the quality of minimally invasive surgery.

This is the main goal of the 2020 Congress in Krakow, Poland.

In Poland we have been testing this formula for seven years now by inviting experts from the whole world to talk about their own difficult situations, undesired events and the ways they managed to overcome difficulties. Surprisingly this attitude increases reliability of the surgeons. One of my colleagues after a talk about his complications was asked by a doctor listening to the lecture to operate on her daughter.

Please, feel invited to the beautiful city of Krakow 24-27 June 2020 to reduce the risk of undesired events happening to our patients.

Warm regards 🙂

Piotr Myśliwiec
EAES 2020 Congress President
