Short description

Scandinavian Surgical Outcomes Research Group (SSORG) started in 2008 as a network of colorectal surgeons with academic interest from six Swedish and four Danish hospitals.

The aim of the group is to scientifically evaluate surgical treatments and perform clinical research with an emphasis on large multicenter trials. We evaluate the safety and efficacy of treatments and with all the participating hospitals as a base for recruitment of patients we aim at a fast inclusion rate. Most of our trials include health related QoL as well as health economic end-points.

Current projects

  • LAParoscopic LAVage (LapLav)

  • Physical activity in relation to surgical operations (PHYSSURG)

  • Pretreatment group consultation for patient with colorectal cancer (INFOM)
