Kyiv Global Surgery Congress ’17 was held in Kyiv
On November 22-23, 2017, the Kyiv Global Surgery Congress '17 took place in Kyiv for the first time. The main idea of the event is to create the largest international discussion platform in Ukraine that unites Ukrainian surgeons from all over the world in the field of emergency, traumatic and military surgery. The organizer of the Forum is the Medical Center "VALIKHNOVSKI SURGERY INSTITUTE", co-organizer – A7 CONFERENCES.
At the Kyiv Global Surgery Congress, the best surgeons in the world gathered for the first time in Ukraine to exchange experience. There was a presentation of European protocols and surgical care standards, demonstration of the experience of Ukrainian surgeons with wounded participants in hostilities. The event presented the highest level of speakers, among them – professors and PhD from the 12 countries of the world.
Rostyslav Valikhnovskyi, Honored Doctor of Ukraine, Founder of VALIKHNOVSKI SURGERY INSTITUTE, Vice President of Ukrainian Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons: “During the congress, I was impressed by the level of reports of our professors, as well as the guests from the countries with the most advanced health care system – because we were visited by 12 representatives of elite clinics from Great Britain, Germany, Israel and South Korea. For example, David Kakiaswilli (Israel) brought his own know-how – "Da Vinci Surgical System". Very interesting was the report by Leonid Kogan, who shared the standards and protocols of reconstructive military surgery. He spoke about the treatment of the Syrian military – about the mechanisms of transplantation of the widest back muscles to the affected upper limbs. A report by a South Korean professor of organ transplantation was very impressive, South Korea is the one of the TOP-10 countries in the world in the development of surgery, in particular transplantology. In Ukraine, unfortunately, this direction is only creating, so even the legislation in this area is still a problem. But I am convinced that after such congresses, there will always be progress in the field of transplantation and every sector of our national surgery.”
Oleksandr Linchevskyi, Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine, noticed during the forum: «It is extremely important to raise the level of education in Ukraine, and today's congress is exactly what we need. Say the word "education" and the Ministry will immediately support it. Such activities are needed for sharing knowledge and experience. The Ministry strongly supports such an initiative and calls for such meetings to be organized on a regular basis».
