The platform for European Digestive Surgery • Founding member of the United European Gastroenterology Federation

Welcome at

Welcome to the website of the EFISDS. The Society has become an European-wide operating organization, and our members represent all aspects of surgery – both by their interests and where they live. As the current president, I welcome our new members, and thank our loyal members who make up the Society.

In this time of globalization the meaningful international exchange among Surgeons has become of utmost importance. The EF-ISDS provides the incentive of keeping its members up to date with the latest developments and rapid changes in Digestive Surgery. We aim to provide a forum for those with specialty interests, as well as for those who have wide general interests.

The EF-ISDS encourages continuing education and research in the field of Digestive Surgery and relates to the experienced professional as well as the young generation of Surgeons in Europe. The aim is to share the learning experience of the scientific developments taught by the world most renowned experts in each subspecialty.

In the coming years, the EF-ISDS Governing Board shall aim:

  • to provide latest technology quality education and training to both young and established surgeons
  • to provide guidelines and standards for benchmarking
  • to act as a lobbying organ and voice for the Surgical community in the EU
  • to engage in both basic and innovative clinical research and development
  • to provide a network for encouragement and recognition of excellence.

We are working hard to make the Society a leader in Surgical Education, and as a vehicle towards improving the quality of surgical care. If you would like to be part of this mission, join the Society. Every one of us has something to contribute in this regard – ideas, advice, expertise and passion. With your help we can make a difference.
