It’s our pleasure to invite you to the second International Debates on Endocrine Surgery (IDES) to be held in Barcelona on 14th and 15th, June 2018.

After a successful IDES16 we dare again to offer you a terrific program on the new edition of IDES.

Fortunately, Endocrine surgery is still evolving and in the last years a couple of approaches are being implemented in this field of surgery.

First of all, Trans Oral Endoscopic Thyroidectomy through Vestibular Approach (TOETVA) has been shown to be an attractive approach to the thyroid and early results seems to be promising. In fact, there is a rising worldwide interest on it.

Second, Ultrasound studies have become the cornerstone to study thyroid disease, to evaluate surgical results, and even to treat in a conservative way thyroid diseases.

Once again, we have invited Surgeons with very high skills on these approaches and also discussants with a great background to take advantage of the debates.

This time we have designed an interesting program in order you can be updated on this topics and, furthermore, you can have a hands-on training in both approaches.

We hope you find the program and the quality of the guests so interesting you would like to be engaged on it.

As usually, this is an intensive course where the main aim is to discuss and in which you are the main guests.

Finally, of course, there is Barcelona: the perfect city thanks to its location, weather, city life and culture, which may also help persuade you to come and spend the weekend here.

We look forward to seeing you.
