European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO)

The mission of the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), established in 1981, is to advance the art, science and practice of surgery for the treatment of cancer.

ESSO organizes the biggest congress in surgical oncology in Europe designed to unify the surgical oncology community in a network of over 20.000 members. The organization provides education and training to both young and experienced surgeons through courses and e-learning activities, publishing a monthly scientific Journal (EJSO-the Journal of Cancer Surgery) and partners in specific projects and courses with other discipline and organ-based societies within ECCO, the European CanCer Organisation.

ESSO further contributes to the development of the surgical oncology program of the European Cancer Congress, provides an attractive fellowship program facilitating exchange of knowledge and continuing medical education and offers specific opportunities for young cancer surgeons and cancer surgeons from developing countries to attend the ESSO Congress.  Finally, ESSO, in collaboration with the European Board of Surgery,organizes an annual examination in surgical oncology and in breast cancer surgery certifying the competence necessary for the treatment of cancer patients.
