On behalf of the organizing committee, it gives us great pleasure to welcome you back to Hong Kong for the 3rd Asian Single Port VATS Symposium & Live Surgery 2015. Over the last two years, we have witnessed enormous progress in single port thoracic surgery, both in terms of technical expertise and skills, as well as advances in instruments and equipment to facilitate ever more complex and challenging surgery. The rapid global expansion in single port VATS surgery is testament to its adoptability and efficacy.

This year, the leading institutes in the world on VATS and related disciplines have again lent their generous support in creating a truly inspiring program. The lectures, discussions, interactive live surgeries and video presentations are at the forefront of single port VATS, and should provide learning opportunities for everyone involved in the meeting.

We warmly welcome you to the vibrant city of Hong Kong, to celebrate the single port approach with our renowned faculty, to start new and rekindle old friendships, to share new ideas, and to participate in redefining the future of minimal invasive thoracic surgery.
