The International Society of University Colon and Rectal Surgeon Founded in November 1962 by Drs. Harry Bacon, Stuart Ross, and Fidel Ruiz-Moreno, proposed that members of the Society would contribute to the field of Colon and Anorectal Surgery by holding international meetings in order to share their scientific knowledge.
The purpose of this society shall be to contribute to the progress of Colon and Anorectal Surgery, and to hold congresses and meetings throughout the world in order to interchange scientific knowledge).
The Society has been an international one since its inception and today it continues to be represented in 80 countries.
ISUCRS bestows prestigious honor to members of the Society consisting of a worldwide network of colon and rectal surgeons and professors with an academic interest, and general surgeons with an emphasis on colon and rectal surgery who are affiliated with a university.
The Society is cognizant of the varying income levels around the world and wants all members to have the opportunity to attend our meetings by keeping registration fees low.
