How Surgeons Operated in Basel

Basel was the host city for the 47th World Congress of Surgery – staged by the International Society of Surgery – which took place between 13 and 17 August 2017 at the Congress Center Basel (CCB). About 2000 participants from all over the world – including an estimated 200 students – came to the city in order to attend the central events held in the CCB as well as additional events held in attractive venues in the vicinity.

The event was organized on a short notice as it had originally been planned for Argentina and the decision to go to Basel was only taken about a year beforehand, on safety and security grounds. Basel’s geographical location offers political and economic stability and is easily accessible thanks to a highly developed public transport system.
