Fast forward to now, Malaysia has seen rapid rise in laparoscopy and great strides have been made by a number of surgeons and centers in the country. This year, the ELSA congress is co-organized with the Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgery of Malaysia (SELSMA) which have arranged a program to encompass all the major disciplines in MIS and also present a world class line up of faculties consisting of experts locally, regionally and internationally.

This year’s theme “ Trailblazing MIS into the next decade” is aptly chosen as we are at a critical time in the development of MIS where we have to balance the emergence of new techniques as opposed to the principle of “ primum non nocere”. SELSMA wish to welcome all surgeons, nurses and medical community to enjoy the intense and high quality scientific content, the cultural bonanza and the warm hospitality of a truly Asian society in Malaysia.
