Fellows have an extremely strong experience in minimally invasive surgery including cutting edge techniques such as transanal mesorectal resections. At the same time, the Fellow has a strong experience in the basics of colon and rectal surgery including endoscopy, benign anorectal disease and pelvic floor.
