Welcome to the first edition of Opus, the new ISGE Newsletter. I am delighted to have been asked to be its editor. The aim of Opus, is to add another method of communicating with ISGE members, share news and events and solicit your views.
The ISGE is a truly global organization with members in 44 countries.
All of us cope with the challenges of medical practice to try and give our patients the very best care. The ISGE allows us to learn new techniques, share our results and network with like-minded colleagues at meetings and through social media.
This newsletter needs YOUR input. We aim to publish four times a year, and I’d be delighted to accept any suggestions for news articles, comment pieces or research papers that have caught your imagination.
Under the leadership of our president, Bruno Van Herendael, and with the support of ExCo and the ISGE Board, the society is going from strength to strength with a growing number of members, and a range of educational and academic projects designed to support your practice in gynaecological endoscopy. We are also keen to play our role in the global family of endoscopic surgery and have exciting collaborations in place with sister endoscopic societies.
