Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium for Commemoration of 5,000 LDLTs at AMC to be held at Asan Medical Center and Grand Walkerhill Seoul from November 30 (Fri) to December 1 (Sat), 2018 in Seoul, Korea.

Since the first Living Donor Liver Transplantation (LDLT) in 1994, Asan Medical Center has successfully performed 5,000 LDLTs in 24 years, the first in the world. The symposium will be held to commemorate this historical and unprecedented achievement with theme of "Institutional challenge to LDLT: Asan's way".

The commemorative symposium will offer comprehensive and exciting scientific programs including an LDLT live demonstration session that will provide a great opportunity for all participants to view a surgery conducted by distinguished surgeons and interact with them in real time. A large number of world-renowned scholars and doctors will also be invited to speak about their remarkable accomplishments and share their expertise.

I am confident that the symposium will serve as an occasion to witness the highest level in LDLT surgery and the steps that led to this epoch-making achievement, and look forward to meeting you all at the International Symposium for Commemoration of 5,000 LDLTs and 500 Dual LDLTs at AMC.

Sincerely yours,
