Dear Colleagues,


Gastric cancer continues to be an important public health problem in the world and in our country. Although there are many different treatment approaches such as adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and targeted therapies, surgical treatment is the most important cornerstone. On the other hand, it is an indispensible need to clarify the treatment of gastric cancer cases after being discussed in multidisciplinary oncology councils.


We are organizing the 1st International Turkish Gastric Cancer Congress in Izmir to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the treatment of gastric cancer, which concerns such a wide and diverse group of physicians. This time, we aim to take the Gastric Cancer Symposiums which we have organized in previous years to higher scientific level and to create a unique platform for all of us.


At the congress that we are planning to hold on October 14-16, 2022, many speakers who are interested in the treatment of gastric cancer in our country, as well as scientists who are authors in their field and well-known all over the world, will share their knowledge and experiences with us. Mitsuru SASAKO from Japan will also contribute to us scientifically, as in previous years.


The 1st International Turkish Gastric Cancer Congress will be held with the cooperation of University of Health Sciences Turkey, İzmir Faculty of Medicine  which was established in 2020 and Ege University Faculty of Medicine. Turkish Surgical Society, Surgical Oncology Association, Gastroenterology Surgery Association and Aegean Region Surgery Association will also support our congress.


As we are coming to the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are very happy to invite you to İzmir, the pearl of the Aegean, with the excitement of meeting face to face again.
