Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the official website of the International Society of OncoPlastic Endocrine Surgeons (ISOPES)! As the President of ISOPES, it is my honour to extend a warm greeting to all visitors and members of our esteemed society.

Founded in 2013, ISOPES has been at the forefront of advancing the science and art of oncoplastic endocrine surgery. Our mission has always been to maintain the highest standards in the practice and art of oncoplastic endocrine surgery, providing a platform for scientific presentations and discussions, and fostering basic and clinical research in this vital field.

Over the past nine years, ISOPES has achieved significant milestones. We have held seven annual or biennial international congresses in vibrant cities such as Seoul, Hong Kong, Hangzhou, Lucknow, and Florida, USA. These events have served as invaluable opportunities for endocrine surgeons from around the world to come together, share knowledge, and forge lasting connections. Additionally, ISOPES has co-hosted numerous local conferences, expanding networks and collaboration among endocrine surgeons globally.

To recognise these achievements, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the former Presidents, Boards of Directors, and all members of ISOPES for their unwavering dedication and support, which have been instrumental in our achievements. We remain focused on strengthening our membership process to ensure the continued growth and vitality of our society.

I am delighted to announce that the next ISOPES congress will take place in November 2025 in the exciting city of Singapore. As the Chair of the local organizing committee, I invite all colleagues to join us for this momentous event. It will be an opportunity for scientific exchange, camaraderie, and celebration as we mark the 11th anniversary of our society.

I look forward to welcoming you to Singapore and to another successful congress of ISOPES. Together, let us continue to advance the field of oncoplastic endocrine surgery for the benefit of patients worldwide. Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication.

Warm regards,

Associate Professor NGIAM Kee Yuan
President, International Society of OncoPlastic Endocrine Surgeons
