9th Swiss Trauma & Acute Care Surgery Days 2020


We regret to announce that the STACS Days 2020 are cancelled due the current global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. The decision to cancel this years STACS Days is based on federal and hospital measures to prevent further spread of the disease. Registered participants, presenters and sponsors will be contacted individually regarding the details of the cancellation process.

Ladies and Gentleman,
On March 13-14, 2020 the 9th SWISS TRAUMA & ACUTE CARE SURGERY (STACS) DAYS will take place at Bern University Hospital, Switzerland. This interdisciplinary two day trauma, resuscitation and emergency surgery meeting will be an update of the newest evidence in trauma and resuscitation (day 1) and non-trauma emergency surgery (day 2).

Taking care of trauma or non-trauma acute surgical patients requires designated professionals from multiple disciplines. Nevertheless, a comprehensive team approach is of paramount importance. The post-acute work-up of these patients is highly valuable and allows the team to review, discuss, and question the performance in a serene setting. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to learn from each other - and once a year at the STACS Days!

We are looking forward meeting with you! In addition, we would like to encourage you to attend the Eat, meet and greet! event for an extra get-together.
Best regards,

Your STACS Organizing Committee
PD Dr. Beat Schnüriger
Prof. Dr. Aristomenis Exadaktylos
Dr. Tobias Haltmeier
