Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We would be delighted for you to join us on the momentous occasion of KSELS 2019, the 44th Congress of KSELS and 9th International Symposium, to share the latest knowledge and innovative methods in the field of laparoscopic surgery in Seoul, Korea from April 25-27, 2019.

The Korean Society of Endoscopic & Laparoscopic Surgery (KSELS) has cultivated wisdom of endoscopic laparoscopic surgery since the foundation of the society in 1995, and has tirelessly dedicated itself to spreading knowledge and achieving the best research outcomes. Now the Society has come to stand at the center of the world in the area of cutting-edge, minimally invasive surgery.

KSELS has been a member of the International Federation of Societies of Endoscopic Surgeons (IFSES) since July 2017, as the main association of international laparoscopic organizations in each region including SAGES, EAES, and ELSA.

For KSELS 2019, we are preparing a highly dynamic and stimulating array of scientific programs. In addition to informative academic programs including a joint symposium with international societies, a wide range of social activities will be planned for us to network, build relationships and celebrate our achievements.

We truly believe KSELS 2019 will be a highly rewarding international festival for each and every one of our participants. Please mark the date in your calendar and follow our updates on our website.

We look forward to seeing you all in Seoul, Korea!
