Exhibitors & Sponsors


The International Society of Surgery ISS/SIC organizes a biennial congress, the World Congress of Surgery (WCS) which usually gathers some 2’500 surgeons from around the world to discuss the major issues of the surgical world. Many of the delegates are decision makers at their hospitals.

WCS is also the major meeting of the Integrated Societies (International Specialist Societies within the fields of Endocrine, Trauma, Nutrition, Breast and Digestive Surgery as well as Anaesthesia). Additionally the Participating Societies and local societies join the congress and provide a scientific program.
