Welcome letter

Congress update May 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to the 13th European annual meeting of SERGS 2021 in September in Svendborg, Denmark.

We are very optimistic that our planned SERGS congress, with physical presence, will go ahead - and thus one of the first medical scientific congresses to be held on top of the Corona pandemic, where we can meet again.

In Denmark, the Corona situation is very positive and we are slowly opening again and conferences with up to 1000 participants are now allowed.

Despite more critical conditions in other European countries, we believe that with the implementation of the European Corona Passport by end of June (digital green certificate), we will be able to welcome almost all potential participants to physical participation in the SERGS 2021 Congress on 23rd to 25th September 2021.

We have put together the strongest possible speaker line-up and we have exciting industrial news to share with you.

As already published, the theme of the congress will be “New frontiers in Robotic Surgery”, the impact of integration of new technologies.

Robotic surgery is well integrated in Denmark as well as the Nordic countries. Although robotic surgery was introduced first in onco-gynecology, new frontiers have been found and especially in the field of benign surgery and in women with endometriosis, robotic surgery has demonstrated its superiority for advanced surgery. In the field of advanced surgery new technologies are needed and the Nordic countries are adopting very fast the latest IT solutions including new options for imaging and combined technologies.

The congress will be held in association with University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital, Denmark.

The venue for the 2021 congress is Svendborg situated on the island of Fyn, Denmark. Svendborg is a small town in a rural, maritime setting and we naturally follow all national guidelines regarding distance and maximum attendance as well as any travelling restrictions.

We look forward to seeing you in Svendborg, Denmark


Martin Rudnicki

Prof. and chair of the congress, and Rainer Kimmig. Prof. SERGS president
