Message

On behalf of all members of the Japan Society for Endoscopic Surgery, I am delighted to welcome all the delegates to Kyoto for the 30th Annual Meeting of the Japan Society for Endoscopic Surgery, schedule to be held at the Kyoto International Conference Center from December 7 (Thu) to 9 (Sat), 2017.

The 1st Meeting of the Endoscopic Surgery Study Group (President: Dr. Yasuo Idezuki) dates back to 1991 and was held twice a year until 1993. Since 1994, a meeting has been held annually. In 1995, the study group was developed and reorganized into the Japan Society for Endoscopic Surgery. After a quarter of a century, the 30th Annual Meeting with the theme:

心技一体
-Shin (Heart) gi (Art) ittai (become one)-
“Heart meets Art: Projecting 30 years of spirit into the next 30 years

Thirty years ago, we could not even imagine the evolution and penetration of endoscopic surgery with the development of optical systems and various energy devices, as well as the emergence of robotic surgery. What will surgery look like in the next 30 years? To what extent will robotic surgery with ever-evolving AI involve or replace surgery done by humans? Will “Skill (art)” training become obsolete? Perhaps a completely different training process from that of the present may appear. On the other hand, the “Heart (compassion for patients),” the basics of medical science, will remain unchanged. There must be a harmony between evolving “Skills (art)” and “Heart,” the origin of medical science.

We are planning for this annual meeting to look back on the history of endoscopic surgery pioneered by our forerunners and reflect on accelerated changes. We sincerely hope you join us to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Japan Society for Endoscopic Surgery.

In Kyoto, there are lighting events for autumn colored leaves at tourist attractions in early December.
Though it may not be easy to secure accommodation, we are preparing to welcome the participation of as many members as possible.
Look forward to welcoming you in Kyoto in December 2017!
