Thoracic Surgery Without Borders

Posted On 2020-06-04 01:24:41



The Department of Vascular and Thoracic Surgery directed by Reinhold Perkmann organizes every 2 years an international conference on current issues of Thoracic Surgery at the Regional Hospital of Bolzano. This international meeting is called BIC (Bolzano International Conference). The motto of the 2019 edition “Thoracic surgery without frontiers” not only expresses that expert speakers from some of the most important centers of Italy, Germany and Austria meet in Bolzano, but also underlines that thoracic surgery in recent years has crossed unimaginable borders and it is no longer limited to traditional methods and techniques but manages to go much further.
