About Forum


Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

The Saudi Society of Colon & Rectal Surgery (SSCRS) and The Saudi Chapter for Enterostomal Therapy welcome you to the Annual Saudi-International Colorectal Diseases Forum at the Four Seasons Hotel, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from the 25-27 March 2018.

This year, we are delighted to continue strengthening our international collaboration with our established colleagues from the prestigious St Mark’s Hospital in the United Kingdom, in addition, we also welcome our new colleagues from Imperial College of London and Academic Medical Center of Amsterdam, along with our regional colleagues from Egypt and Gulf Cooperation Council Countries (G.C.C.C.). Our aim to strengthen clinical collaborations by sharing experiences, up-to-date technologies, innovations, controversies and latest research findings.

The main theme of this year’s Forum is "Colorectal cancer screening & prevention". Experts from The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) will present some of their newest evidence & recommendations for the first time. Their efforts will help support our continuous efforts to establish early detection and national colorectal screening programs in the kingdom and the Gulf region.

The program will also include highly interactive & interesting topics covering common aspects of colorectal diseases. I hope you will find this year’s forum interesting, beneficial and relevant to your clinical practice.

Finally, I would like to thank all our sponsors for their support.

Looking forward for your participation.

Sincerely,



Dr. Samar Alhomoud
