It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Hyderabad for the International Symposium on Inflammatory Bowel Disease scheduled on 26th – 28th January 2018. As you are aware, IBD is an emergent disease in India and the Asia-Pacific with a rising incidence over the last decade. Crohns disease & ulcerative colitis are chronic lifelong conditions. Establishing and maintaining symptom control and remission is critical to minimize the complications. The changing socio economic environment and prevalent disease patterns has presented unique diagnostic
dilemmas, management controversies and challenges.
This symposium aims to provide an in-depth review of the pathophysiology, diagnostic methods, medical and surgical therapeutic approaches of IBD. International and national experts in the field will discuss, debate and highlight the latest concepts and consensus in the management of IBD.
Overall, we need to learn from each other, share knowledge and best local practices to optimally manage our patients.
We would like to welcome everyone who has interest and expand the knowledge on IBD to join us in Hyderabad in January!
