Section of Endoscopic Surgery TChP

The section was appointed by the Main Board of the Society of Polish Surgeons (TChP) on 1988,
December 12nd. At 10th March the following year was the first convention. The initiator of the section, the organizer of the First General Assembly, and the first Chairman of the Board of the Section was Prof.  Tadeusz Popiela. Thanks to his efforts endoscopic surgery has become a part of clinical surgery. At the beginning separate scientific conferences of the Section were organized, and since the TChP Congress in Bydgoszcz, endoscopic surgery sessions have been organized during the two-year TChP Congress.
The activity of the Section Board, chaired by Prof. Tadeusz Popiela also resulted in the recognition of Polish endoscopic surgery on the international stage. Polish surgeons are the authors of many papers presented at international conventions and published in reputable journals. Polish surgeons are also members of the European Society of Endoscopic Surgery (EAES). Professor Tadeusz Popiela was the Chairman of the Board of the Section until 2005. His undisputed merit in the field of endoscopic surgery is his choice of Honorary Section Chair.

On September 10th, 2015 in Lublin, during the 67th Congress of the Society of Polish Surgeons, the General Meeting of the Endoscopic Surgery Section of the TChP was held, where the new authorities were elected.
