Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to
extend a warm welcome to all of you at the Hong Kong
Surgical Forum 2024.

This year's forum promises to be an extraordinary
gathering of renowned experts, esteemed medical
professionals from around the globe. We have distinguished speakers from China, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, the
United Kingdom and the United States, who will share their invaluable knowledge and expertise in the field of gastrointestinal surgery.

The Hong Kong Surgical Forum has always been at the forefront of cutting-edge surgical advances; this year is no exception. Our focus will be on exploring the latest breakthroughs in gastrointestinal surgery, a field that continues to witness remarkable advancements and transformative innovations. We aim to foster collaboration, exchange ideas, and push the boundaries of what is possible in surgical care through engaging lectures, interactive workshops, and thought-provoking discussions.

This year, our GB Ong Orator will be Pierre-Alain Clavien from the University of Zurich and Guest of Honour will be Ara Darzi from Imperial College London. We are also introducing The Legend Series; for which we are honored to have Carlos Pellegrini from the University of Washington and Murray Brennan from Memorial Sloan
Kettering Cancer Center to share their experiences. We encourage all participants to actively engage in the scientific sessions, contribute to the vibrant discussions,
and take advantage of the networking opportunities available. This forum serves as a platform for sharing experiences, expanding professional networks, and
forging lasting collaborations that will shape the future of surgical practice. 


Once again, we extend our warmest welcome. Your presence and expertise are invaluable in making this forum a resounding success. We wish you a fruitful and
rewarding experience at the Hong Kong Surgical Forum as we collectively strive to enhance patient care and drive surgical excellence.

Welcome to the Hong Kong Surgical Forum (HKSF) 2024.

The Hong Kong Surgical Forum is an annual meeting organised by the Department of Surgery since 1983.  Our theme ‘Multidisciplinary Approach for Digestive Surgery’ symbolizes the current trend of management in various hepato-pancreato-biliary conditions as well as gastrointestinal diseases.  With the advancement of AI and big data in the 21st century,  the GB Ong Lecture will give us a glance on the future challenges and opportunities for liver surgeons.  The main Forum program aims to provide a platform for knowledge exchange and unique experience and exposure for surgical robotics, surgical oncology and surgical endoscopy for trainees and specialists.  The Legend series, first time in the program aims to enlighten the current and younger generations of surgeons on different perspectives in life outside their career.  Last but not least, the two lunch symposiums will focus on the state-of-the-art developments in liver cancer and common upper GI disease.  


As always, our aim is to fulfil the ambition of providing a diversified but yet exciting program to suit the needs of our colleagues in one of the most important annual events in the surgical calendar not just in Hong Kong, but also in Asia and beyond.
Looking forward to seeing you at HKSF 2024!
