Founded in 1995, the European Digestive Surgery (EDS) Society promotes general and abdominal surgery by supporting basic clinical and scientific research and postgraduate education. We are convinced that communication and collaboration are the key to highlighting visceral surgery education and research not only in Europe but also in the scientific community worldwide.
Since EDS was founded, the total number of members of the organization has grown to over 1,000. In addition, the composition of our society is becoming more and more international, as EDS now includes renowned surgeons from a total of 62 countries.

Rather than the purely surgical discipline driven approach, the EFISDS prefers to focus more on the disease as a whole, taking in account all the skill sets required to deliver the optimal outcome. This also includes non technical skills such as public relations, understanding of media technologies and the development of educational skills and technologies. EFISDS is all about education and training, supporting and engaging in on-line discussion and collaboration platforms, live surgery web transmissions and streaming video.
The aim is to enhance the dialogue between the focus groups and to stimulate training and education by providing quality on line-mentoring.
