Dear esteemed colleagues,

In order to facilitate the mutual exchange and collaboration of ASEAN surgeons and oncologists, Upper Gastro-Intestinal Sugical Association of ASEAN (USAN) has been established. We really wish that USAN will be the bridge connecting all ASEAN surgeons in terms of  medical standards with the latest and innovative approaches to diagnose and manage Upper Gastro-Intestinal disorders, including early screening and diagnosis of gastro-esophageal cancer, imaging and laparoscopic, robotic techniques for more precision and better clinical outcomes.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great honor and pleasure to cordially invite you to participate in the first congress of USAN which will be held at University Medical Center, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on June 28-29, 2019. We are honored to have Professor Han-Kwang Yang from Seoul National University College of Medicine, Korea, Professor Mitsuru Sasako from Hyogob College of Medicine, Japan and Professor Chandramohan from Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital and Madras Medical College, Chennai, India to serve as the keynote speakers of congress.

The aim of this congress is to share our experiences on the new techniques and the development of Upper Gastro-Intestinal research, and to build the relationships and cooperations of ASEAN countries. Incorporating a multidisciplinary aspect, USAN 2019 will bring the best learning chance and international festival for Upper GI specialists.

We hope that you will have an unforgettable experience at USAN 2019.
