Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great  pleasure  to  welcome  you  to the 44th  Annual Scientific Congress of The Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand and the 3rd Joint Surgical Meeting with The Ministry of Public Health in Pattaya, Jomtien during 13-16 July 2019.

The theme of this congress is entitled “ ASEAN Collaboration in Value-Based Surgery”.

To date, there is the advanced development in the modalities of surgical treatments aiming to minimize pain through the less  invasive  surgical access  with the  outcome  achievement  compared  to  the  conventional  procedures.  However,  the long-term  outcome,  the safety, and the expenditure  of  treatment  have  to   be  evaluated  and  compared  among  those   modalities to obtain the evidence-based strategies for the appropriate guidelines of management in all surgical specialties.

This year, Thailand is the host of ASEAN Economics Community Collaboration. We are taking this opportunity to invite the surgeons from ASEAN countries  to  share  their  surgical  knowledge  and  experience  in  our  annual  scientific  meeting. With the same disease entity and the same physical  structure  among ASEAN  population,  the  scientific information will be highly valuable and applicable to all participants. Moreover, the strong relationship among ASEAN surgeons will be more substantial in the future.

We are  pleased  to  have  your  suggestions  and  participations  for the most productive activities of this congress. Our communication will be effective through the RCST website “ www.rcst.or.th”.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this congress.
