Pofessor Bruhat died on February 25, 2014. The whole endoscopic community that he created is mourning. Professor Bruhat was the founding member of our Society. He had a true vision of the minimally invasive approach for gynaecologic surgeons. He wanted to make this approach accessible to all patients. He was a visionary, tenacious and forceful man. He had to have such qualities to empower our surgical community with the skills and knowhow required to approach surgery. It was indeed necessary to elicit and gather such skills to benefit this project.
It is undoubtedly his scientific approach, his strong determination and his extraordinary charisma which originated in his highly successful achievements. Not only did he create our Society but he also guided it during its early years to bring it to the shape in which it is today.
A special tribute will be paid to Professor Bruhat during our annual congress in Brussels and the ESGE will keep on honouring his memory in the future.
The members of the administrative board and all members of our Society express their deepest grief and would like to address their sincere condolences to Professor Bruhat’s family.
