Prof Werner Hohenberger presented the BASO~ACS sponsored lecture at the 1st Portsmouth CME Symposium on 24th May 2019.

Prof Hohenberger was invited to give a lecture on the "Evolution of CME surgery for colon cancer" as through his working life he developed the notion of complete mesocolic excision. Any simple search online would provide an outline and details of the procedure; but it was great pleasure to hear in his own words the mesenteric-based approach to resection of the right colonic cancer. He provided the background to the procedure and the details and reasons for development of the surgical technique.

After the lecture it was a pleasure to hear Prof Hohenberger talk about his work and development of various facets in the institutes to enable colleagues to perform surgery. He clearly is a passionate teacher and advocate for best practice for patient care. He eloquently described his working life and through this gave a clear description of how standardisation is important for patients and how evidence base must be integrated within clinical practice. A phenomenal gentleman who makes time to encourage the next generation!

We would encourage members to keep an eye out for these sponsored lectures as the provide a wealth of experience but also an opportunity to talk to the speakers directly through the satellite networking events.
