BDMS Cancer Networking Forum
Welcome Message

It is a great honor to announce the 5th BDMS Cancer Networking Forum. It is the objective of BDMS Center of Excellence Institute for Cancer to organize meetings and workshops to foster the knowledge and to extend the networking in the field.

BDMS Center of Excellence for Colorectal Cancer has shown its strength and becomes one of the world leading organizations in colorectal cancer care. In relation to this, we are pleased to organize TaTME International hands-on Cadaveric workshop and live surgery.

Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (TaTME) has developed its popularity and become one of the standard approaches for sphincter saving rectal cancer surgery. We are very honored to have Professor Antonio Maria de Lacy Fortuny, the founder for TaTME, as our distinguished guest.

This will be the first Hands-on Cadaveric workshop on TaTME in the region.

This training will serve as an international platform to foster academic knowledge exchange as well as to share innovations and breakthroughs in this field, so that the participants can apply it in their respective fields, all in the betterment of colorectal disease care, and for a sophisticated and integrated approach resulting in more and more effective treatment outcome.
