Welcome Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome each and everyone of you to COLOPROCTOLOGY 2018 in the historic state of Malacca.

The meeting this year is of true historical significance as it marks exactly 15 years since we had our very first conference which coincidentally was held here in Malacca. Over the years, we have had the privilege of having the presence of distinguished and renowned experts from around the world who have imparted their knowledge and made our meetings a resounding success.

Similarly, this year, the Organising Committee has worked tirelessly to put together an interesting programme involving an array of colorectal topics presented by a distinguished faculty. The programme will begin with a pre-congress workshop on anorectal sepsis wherein experts shall share their views and demonstrate the roles and practical use of both an endoanal ultrasound and an MRI as a preoperative tool.

This will be followed by lectures on various colorectal topics from pelvic floor disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancers including a segment on genomics of colorectal cancer. These shall be delivered in various symposia, plenaries and the "how I do it video sessions".

As always, an interactive allied health programme which has garnered lots of interest amongst enterostomal nurses from near and afar will run concurrently.

A special feature of our conference is a separate symposium held on the final day for Colorectal cancer patients and survivors. The object of this is to impart knowledge and update patients / survivors on current issues in colorectal cancer at the same time, create a platform of psychosocial support amongst them.

Before I close, let me take this opportunity to share with you an upcoming event that you may want to attend. We have been given the privilege of hosting the next Asia Pacific Federation of Coloproctology (APFCP) Congress which is scheduled from 14th to 17th March 2019 to be held at the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Do block those dates and we hope to see you there.

A word of thanks to the medical and pharmaceutical industry who have always been pillars of support in all our endeavors and in making our meeting a success.

Let me close now by wishing you all an enlightening and a most fruitful meeting here in Malacca and do take the opportunity to visit this remarkable and historic city.



Dato' Dr Meheshinder Singh
President, Malaysian Society of Colorectal Surgeons (MSCRS) &
Organising Chairman, Coloproctology 2018
