Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I’m welcoming you to the first European “International Workshop on Transoral Mini-Invasive Surgery in Head and Neck Cancer”.

I believe that Transoral Mini-invasive Surgery should soon become the most desirable aim for H&N surgeons, if not already done. Our new scientific challenge is to achieve oncologic radicality maintaining a high quality of life with short-term hospitalization and low rate of complications.

I’m pleased to gather in Trieste the highest European representatives of this new operative philosophy. One of the American pioneers of this surgical technique is our special guest Richard Hayden, who has been carrying on this methodology at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix (Arizona, USA) for a long time.

The scientific program offers experts’ lectures, videos and peculiar oral communications to enrich the professional experience of senior participants and to introduce younger specialists and residents to the miniinvasive surgery principles.

In addition to the attractive scientific program, I hope that the urban context will warmly welcome you. Trieste offers a melting of mitteleuropean cultures.

Let’s meet in Trieste, your presence is a key part of the workshop’s success.

I look forward to meeting all of you at the congress.

With kind regards

Giancarlo Tirelli
