15th B.E.S.T. Congress – Bruges – 3&4 December 2018

We trust you enjoyed the 15th edition of the B.E.S.T. meeting in Bruges. We are confident it was once again an amazing international congress, thanks to briljant speakers, remarkable live-surgeries and a great industry exhibition.

We welcomed 280 professionals from 32 countries worldwide, and the overall feedback from all attendees was uniformly positive!

Please check our facebook page to see all the pictures of the congress:



We would like to express our most sincere appreciation to all faculty members and participants, live surgeons, chairmen and moderators. Scientific exchange is indeed not possible without the contribution of the scientists themselves!

Finally, most of all, we want to thank the team at the Sint-Jan hospital: residents, assistants, anesthesiologists, OR nurses, and event coordinators  who gave their very best.  A special thank you for Mediaventures who did a wonderful job with the live-transmission!

Please accept our warmest and thankful regards. We wish you and your relatives and friends a very happy holiday season.
