Hong Kong
Surgical Forum

15 Jan 2021


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.

Topics are of current interest to both general surgeons and surgeons in more specialized fields. Each topic is presented by invited distinguished guest speakers including leading surgeons from overseas.

Innovation and technology has become an integral part of modern development across all specialties in surgery.  With this in mind, our aim is to provide a platform to showcase the state-of-the-art innovations as well as emerging technology with implications for clinical applications in various disciplines of surgery.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Forum 2021 will be conducted on a Virtual online platform.
