Follow-up / report
In an effort to establish International Society of Gynecologic Endoscopy (ISGE)’s presence in China and to attract more members, The ISGE organized three very successful Minimally Invasive Gynecology conferences in China in partnership with China Association of Maternal and Child Health Care (http://www.cmcha.org), and Chinese Obstetrician and Gynecologist Association (COGA, http://www.coga.org.cn/).
On May 6th, 2018, the “2018 Hess Core China-US-Canada International Minimally Invasive Gynecology Technology Forum & ISGE Fuzhou Summit” was jointly sponsored by ISGE, China Association of Maternal and Child Health Care, and Fujian Women and Children Hospital (http://www.fjsfy.com/).
This meeting was attended by more than 500 Chinese gynecologists. The ISGE faculty, Drs. Resad Pasic and Robert Zurawin presented lectures and performed two live surgeries. There has obvious interest among Chinese colleagues for ISGE activities. We discussed the possibility of setting up the ISGE training Center at Fujian Women and Children Center. Fujian Women and Children Center is in the process of building a brand new 2000- bed hospital, which include MIGS training facility that could be an ideal place for ISGE training partnership.
