Hong Kong Surgical Forum
The Hong Kong Surgical Forum is a biannual Spring and Autumn meeting which has continued without a break since its inception in 1983. It is an international postgraduate meeting held over a weekend.

Happy New Year & Welcome to the Hong Kong Surgical Forum (HKSF) 2020.
This year, the HKSF will be preceded by a one-day workshop on the state-of-the-art magnetic surgery for restoration of function in gastroesophageal reflux disease, then followed by the main forum program that encapsulates a wide spectrum of disciplines ranging from reconstructive genito-urethral surgery to pediatric surgery, from upper gastrointestinal surgery to bariatric & metabolic surgery, and from vascular surgery to surgical oncology. The GB Ong lecture will be delivered by the honorable Lord Ara Darzi who will speak about Digital Transformation in Health. Following this lecture will be two concurrent lunch symposiums that will focus on the next generation of endoscopy and magnetic sphincter surgery respectively. The final day of HKSF will be completed by an animal workshop on the application of high-resolution 3D laparoscopy and indocyanine green fluorescent imaging in pediatric surgery. This 3-day program is substantially enriched by the expertise from 13 elite international faculties across different continents. We aim to fulfil the ambition in providing a diversified but yet exciting program to suit the needs of our colleagues of different specialties in one of the most important events in the surgical calender not just in Hong Kong, but also in Asia and beyond.
Last but not least, the HKSF will provide a precious opportunity, not only for surgeons, but also for friends and colleagues across all specialties, locally or internationally, to meet and exchange their knowledge and expertise.
