About the Meeting


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and members of the Korean Society of Surgical Metabolism and Nutrition (KSSMN), we welcome you to the 22th Congress of the KSSMN & 2017 International Symposium, which will be held from March 16 (Thu) to 18 (Sat), in Seoul, Korea.

The society has changed the name from study group to society in 2010 inheriting the tradition of Surgical Metabolism & Nutrition Study Group founded in 1994. In this ever-changing international era, our society has been responding to the historical calling and achieving remarkable developments.

In KSSMN 2017, we will set and open places discussing on professional opinions worldwide. The society will make such qualitatively and quantitatively substantial results because our junior and senior scholars, doctors as well as our former executives have given their dedicated efforts, continuous affections and active participation in the improvement in treatments and research surrounding our workplaces.

We have invaluable opportunities to nurture our reflective knowledge beyond the learning and extend our network and eventually perform our actions as leaders in the macro level of social treatment.

I greatly appreciate all of our members and officials who provided the friendship and support to the KSSMN to prepare such a large scale event.

With warmest regards,

Jae Moon Bae, M.D., Ph.D.
President of Korean Society of Surgical Metabolism and Nutrition
