Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 29th International Meeting of the Pediatric Colorectal Club, which will take place at the Waldorf Hotel in Jerusalem from June 26h to June 28th, 2022.

Diseases of the colon and rectum in children such as anorectal malformations, Hirschsprung’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, idiopathic constipation and fecal incontinence present a special challenge to pediatric surgeons. Many of these diseases have a major impact on quality of life and warrant long-term follow-up. In order to provide the best medical and surgical care to children with colorectal diseases, it is essential that we have the highest possible standards of education, training and research.

The International Meeting of the Pediatric Colorectal Club represents the most important annual event for all pediatric surgeons who take care of infants and children with colorectal disorders. The 29th International Meeting of the Pediatric Colorectal Club aims to provide up to date clinical and scientific information on all aspects of pediatric colorectal diseases and malformations to practicing pediatric surgeons, pediatric urologists, pediatricians, pediatric gastroenterologists, nurses and patient support groups.

Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and plays a central role in the spiritual and emotional perspective of the three major monotheistic religions. For Jews throughout the world it is the focus of age-old yearnings, a living proof of ancient grandeur and independence and a centre of national renaissance; for Christians it is the scene of Jesus’ agony and triumph; for Muslims it is the goal of the Prophet Muhammad’s mystic night journey and the site of one of Islam's most sacred shrines. For all three faiths it is a holy city, a centre of pilgrimage, and an object of devotion.

 

We hope that many of you will be able to stay longer and participate in the 23rd European Congress of Pediatric Surgery, which will take place at the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv from June 29th to July 2nd, 2022.
