Last year was the most successful year in the history of ISGE since it was founded in 1989. Under the leadership of President Rob O’Shea
and Medical Director Bruno van Herendael there have been several major initiatives benefitting our members.
We had outstanding successful meetings in Yaounde, Cameroon and Pune, India in 2018. We have also increased the number of our Centres of Excellence who are running training courses and accreditation for ISGE Members.
Membership of the ISGE is at an all time high, we welcome all our new members wherever they are in the world, who are keen to learn and develop their endoscopic surgical skills. Well done Hisham Arab for all your sterling efforts in this area !
Our next Congress in Cape Town in April under the leadership of our Honorary Secretary Dr Viju Thomas looks like having a high number of delegates keen to enjoy the cocktail of science, friendship and African hospitality. If you’ve not registered yet, do come along!
ISGE continues to form strong relationships in China, we have participated in meetings in Fuzhow, Shenzai, Xian and Shanghai. We look forward to our first regional meeting in Nanning in September!
