Our workshop is aimed at colorectal surgeons experienced in laparoscopic and/or robotic rectal surgery, and ideally also experienced with transanal surgery, especially TEM and TAMIS. This 2-day course will focus on the rationale for TaTME and appropriate patient selection. It will cover all practical aspects required to set up a safe and effective service. In-depth didactic lectures, explanatory videos and hands-on on training in human cadavers will be provided by expert national and international faculty. We aim to run the course for 8 delegates, and would strongly encourage surgeons to sign up in teams for the course. We will also run a series of lectures specifically for the theatre staff and they will also be able to join in for the practical sessions.
Registration fee is per person and includes admittance to the course, congress kit, coffee-breaks, quick lunches, social dinner, certificate of attendance.
