This year’s Annual SAGES Meeting continues a long-standing tradition of innovative technology in the fields of general, gastrointestinal, endoscopic, robotic, and minimally invasive surgery.
Who Should Attend?
The SAGES Annual Meeting has elements that have been specifically designed to meet the needs of practicing surgeons, surgeons-in-training, GI assistants, nurses and other allied health professionals who are interested in minimally invasive surgery and gastrointestinal endoscopy. Thorough coverage of traditional topics and presentations of "cutting edge" material can be found in this program. The SAGES Program Committee recommends that participants design their own attendance schedule based on their own personal educational objectives.
SAGES (The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons) was founded in 1981 to foster, promote, support and encourage academic, clinical and research achievement in gastrointestinal endoscopic surgery. SAGES currently boasts more than 5,500 general surgeon members from countries ringing the globe. SAGES annual meeting is oriented toward minimally invasive surgery and in 2012 had an attendance of more than 2,300 surgeons.
