The event features interactive lectures from world-renowned experts and keynote speakers sharing best practice.
The University of Portsmouth will host the 7th Portsmouth Colorectal Congress from the 14-17 June in the Portland Building.
This annual event is the leading European robotic specific colorectal congress, will focus on the controversies, principles, and applications of total mesorectal excision (TME) and complete mesocolic excision (CME) surgeries for rectal and colon cancer.
Interactive lectures from world-renowned experts and keynote speakers sharing best practice will be followed by operating surgeries displayed live at the congress, describing these surgical techniques. The surgical techniques will be shown through both the laparoscopic and robotic approach. The congress will be followed by hands-on courses on both laparoscopic and robotic platforms.
Bowel cancer is one of the most common types of cancer diagnosed in the UK, with more than 42,000 people diagnosed every year.
The event is organised by the Colorectal Team at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, the University of Portsmouth and VIMARS (Victory Institute of Minimal Access & robotic Surgery).
Experts from the University and the Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust have recently designed a new algorithm will improve bowel-cancer patient care.
They used artificial intelligence and data analytics to predict the length of hospital stay for bowel cancer patients, whether they will be readmitted after surgery, and their likelihood of death over a one or three-month period. The intelligent model will allow healthcare providers to design the best patient care and prioritise resources.
