SAGES History and Commitment to Education and Safety
Thirty years ago, a small group of visionary surgeons banded together to focus on the idea that flexible endoscopy was important to the practice of gastrointestinal surgeons. They came together at a time when it was unclear whether or not surgeons would continue to do flexible endoscopy or whether these procedures would completely fall in the realm of the gastroenterologists.
