Welcome to the  BGES web site !

The Belgian Group for Endoscopic Surgery remains one of the most active national movements in Europe.

Our main goal remains to establish contacts among all surgeons involved in this fast evolving domain . A cooperation agreement has been signed on nov. 14, 2000 with the KVGH-SRBC.

The BGES now offers a Combined EAES-BGES membership with « Surgical Endoscopy » at reduced rate; see « About Us » then « How to be member » below.

We organise hands on laparoscopic suturing courses for junior residents ( Brussels March 13th ),  a hands-on Pig lab ( Leuven june 12th ) and a cadaver course for senior residents during the BSW ( Gent May 8th ).  The well-appreciated Starters course in Strasbourg open for Senior residents had been organized for years. This  programme offers residents the possibility to enhance their technical skills step by step,  progressing from the black box to the pig and eventually to the cadaver course and the starters course. All these events are a joint venture with the  BAST and are open for  residents who are BGES members.

Our Monday sessions keep you in touch with what’s  hot in laparoscopic surgery.  June 1st NAMUR, September 21st, GENT
