The Indian Association of Gastrointestinal Endosurgeons (IAGES) is an organization of surgeons formed to promote and spread the advancement of Endoscopic Surgery throughout India and beyond. The advancement and improvements in technology has resulted in significant changes in the surgical treatment of patients.
The association needs the members to support in compiling a good collection of our own articles and videos on laparoscopic surgery. There are now many centers performing advanced and complex laparoscopic surgeries regularly. There are only few dedicated minimal invasive surgery departments in the country. Some of the training centers are of international standards. Our surgeons compare equal or better than the best in the world. Our numbers give us the experience faster than elsewhere. The minimal invasive surgery has the advantage of early recovery and return to work and most beneficial to our people. This surgery should spread to the nook and corner of India . We should promote local companies to provide us the equipments at easily affordable price and make this surgery available to all. We need to establish uniformity and high standard of practice and training in endosurgey. We all have to get together and work towards this goal. The first step towards this is to have an audit of our work. This will give us an insight to look at ourselves and compare with others.
The IAGES is a growing and dynamic organization that will continue to play a leading role in the future progress of Endoscopic Surgery and advanced technology development. We invite surgeons to join the IAGES and help us to achieve our aims and objectives. Our strength and influence depend on our membership. By joining the IAGES you will enhance your continued professional development and thus the quality of surgical care to your patients.
