I was very happy to receive the British Journal of Surgery prize for my paper: 'Does mechanical bowel preparation preceding colon cancer operation affect five year mortality and cancer recurrence rate?' at the ESCP Annual Meeting in Vienna in September 2012. As part of the ESCP/ASCRS reciprocal Travelling Fellow program, I was able to present my paper again at the ASCRS meeting in Phoenix, Arizona this year, and I would like to thank both ESCP and ASCRS for this opportunity.
