1st CONGRESS OF THE SLOVENIAN ASSOCIATION OF PEDIATRIC SURGERY (SAOPS) with International Participation

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is a great pleasure and satisfaction to invite you to the 1st Congress of the Slovenian Association of Pediatric Surgery, which is to be held in the “Thermana Laško Congress Center”, Slovenia, on November 10-11th, 2017. The Congress is an important scientific meeting, but has as well a special cause for us to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Slovenian Association of Pediatric Surgery (SAOPS).

SAOPS was founded on December 14th, 2007, in the General Hospital of Celje, therefore the decision was made to organize the Congress in the Thermana Laško Congress Center, located in the near vicinity of its foundation. Laško is a small and beautiful city in the heart of Slovenia, close to Celje that has a long tradition of beer brewing and a well-known Wellnes Spa center (Thermana Laško) with modern congress facilities. Laško is easily accessible by car, bus or train. The nearest airports are in Ljubljana (Slovenia), Graz (Austria) and Zagreb (Croatia).

The primary topics of the congress will cover all major fields of pediatric surgery: general pediatric surgery, pediatric trauma surgery, pediatric urology, pediatric gastrointestinal surgery, pediatric thoracic surgery, minimally invasive surgery. We will enjoy lectures held by some European and worldwide leading experts.

Thermana Laško with its Congress Center and the Hotel Thermana Laško****Superior will provide an excellent Venue for the Congress and will also give you the opportunity to relax after the busy scientific program in the Wellness Spa Center.

We look forward to welcoming you in Laško
