Laparoscopic and Transanal Colorectal Supermaster Course

Full immersion in colorectal, transanal and proctological surgery

Twenty years have passed since the first laparoscopic colonic resection and today the minimally invasive approach represents the gold standard for the treatment of cancer and benign diseases of the colorectal tract.
In the continual attempt to minimize minimally invasive surgery, innovative techniques such as Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision have been developed, and this technique promises to completely eliminate any visible scar while radically treating rectal cancer.
