Welcome to the BGES Website

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


The BGES is the scientific committee dedicated to the study, teaching and promotion of laparoscopic surgery in Belgium. It is affiliated with the Royal Belgian Society of Surgery and works closely with the Belgian Association of Surgical Trainees.

The board organizes a number of workshops for residents and trained surgeons, three evening sessions, a biennal congress, and a biennal congress trip.

It has been one of the most dynamic laparoscopic scientific societies since its creation in 1991.
