The role of the Mediterranean Society of Coloproctology over the last 20 years of its existence has been to create a network of specialists across the Mediterranean basin in order to share knowledge and promote excellence in all aspects of lower gastrointestinal surgery. The society has been growing with steady rhythm and has managed to attract more and more countries into its ever growing surgical “family”.
The society’s 11th biennial meeting found place in Thessaloniki, Greece and was hosted by the Interbalkan Medical Centre, a state-of-the-art hospital covering all aspects of elective and emergency medicine across Northern Greece and the Balkans.
Dear Members of the Mediterranean Society of Coloproctology (MSCP),
Nowadays, the need for colorectal surgery as a subspecialty has increased tremendously.
It has been about 20 years since Prof. Herand Abcarian  expressed the need to recognize coloproctology as a separate specialty uniformly worldwide.
In the USA colorectal surgeons founded the American Proctology Society in 1889 and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery was charted to certify the future specialists in this field over 70 years ago.
The 11th Biennial Congress of the MSCP found place in Thessaloniki (Greece) from 4 to 5 May 2018.
The very comfortable location of the Interbalkan Medical Centre in Thessaloniki (Greece) hosted the 11th Biennial Congress of the Mediterranean Society of Coloproctology, which is being organized in cooperation with the Greek-German Society of Surgery.
