The BSGE has a twenty-six year history of improving standards, promoting training and encouraging the exchange of information in minimal access surgery techniques.

From our inaugural president Alan Gordon to our current leader Dominic Byrne, our fourteen presidents have helped the society grow from a group of thirty surgical pioneers to the dynamic, active society it is today, with a membership of over a thousand consultants, trainees, nurses, GPs and students.
