Welcome to BSGE

The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy exists to improve standards, promote training and encourage the exchange of information in minimal access surgery techniques for women with gynaecological problems.
Originally founded in 1989 by a small group of consultant gynaecologists keen to promote the benefits of minimal access (‘keyhole’) surgery for their patients, the society has since grown to over 500 members. These include specialist nurse practitioners, GP’s, gynaecological consultants and their trainees. In 2000, BSGE was granted charitable status.
BSGE exists not only to serve its members, but also to promote knowledge and understanding of the endoscopic approach to diagnosis and treatment to a wider public, including patients and those responsible for the formulation of healthcare policy.
To achieve this we work closely with partner organisations, most notably The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as well as The European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy, and also partners in industry on whom we rely for the many technological advances which make possible so much of what we can do for our patients.
Our website has evolved greatly in the last few years, thanks to the good work of Saikat Banerjee and Tyrone Carpenter but we recognise the need for further improvements and developments. We are adding new features to this important portal in the comming months, such as integration of the video library and discussion forums, members profile/directory and a section for patient information. If you have ideas on how to improve the site we would welcome your suggestions and very much look forward to hearing from you.
